Casey Affleck joins the cast of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar
It is no secret that most of us here at Flix66 love Christopher Nolan. MEMENTO, THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY and INCEPTION are among my favorite films. So it is with great anticipation and excitement that I await his next project. Apparently, Ben Affleck’s little brother Casey Affleck will have a role in the film as well. Casey Affleck has been a surprise talent in films like GONE BABY GONE, THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD and the upcoming AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS. I’m guessing Affleck can mark down future roles in Christopher Nolan films as the director definitely likes to reuse his actors.
The plot of INTERSTELLAR is still being kept under wraps. What we do know is that it’s a combination of an original script from Christopher Nolan’s brother Jonathan Nolan and involves a group of explorers that go through a worm hole and get involved in time travel and alternate dimensions. But Nolan won’t be using the original script alone, he’s also merging some of his original ideas into Jonathan’s script, meaning it will be even more ambitious than the first draft suggested. The Christopher Nolan directed film will have a cast that currently includes, Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Cain and Casey Affleck. INTERSTELLAR is set to hit theaters and IMAX November 7, 2014. (Elle Magazine)
