Matthew McConaughey has confirmed his lead role (a character named Cooper) in Christopher Nolan’s (The Dark Knight trilogy) next film, Interstellar. During a recent phone interview with the Star Tribune, McConaughey verified that the recent speculation surrounding the casting was indeed true. What little we know so far about Interstellar is that it involves time travel and is based on the theories of astrophysicist Kip Thorne. It is written by Christopher and his brother Jonathan and currently has a November 7, 2014 release date. You may now be excited.
