Anne Hathaway to star opposite Matthew McConaughey in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Apr. 9, 2013by:

Anne Hathaway has selected her first leading role after winning the Oscar for LES MISERABLES and it will reteam her with her DARK KNIGHT RISES director, Christopher Nolan. Deadline is reporting that Hathaway will star opposite Matthew McConaughey in Nolan's INTERSTELLAR.

INTERSTELLAR has picked up a lot of steam since Steven Spielberg left the project, which was scripted by Jonah Nolan. Christopher Nolan jumped aboard the project which is kept under massive secrecy, much like the director's INCEPTION. What we do know about INTERSTELLAR is this:

"INTERSTELLAR involves time travel and alternate dimensions in a story that sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole. The script is based on scientific theories developed by a Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, a gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech."

When the news broke that Matthew McConaughey was going to star, the reaction was greatly positive. I have a feeling there will be some backlash against Hathaway as that seems to be the national sport these days. I like Hathaway as an actress and think she makes an interesting choice for a science fiction film. I think her role in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES could have been handleds differently, but I have no qualms about how Nolan and David Goyer portrayed Selina Kyle.

With INTERSTELLAR slated to open on November 7, 2014, I think we will keep hearing casting news in the near future.

Extra Tidbit: I think Anne Hathaway is hot. Anyone disagree?

I have to agree with Statburst, she was great in TDKR and is very versatile. Can't wait for Interstellar, I've actually created a fan dedicated website at [link] let me know what you guys think?

Looking forward to her performance

I personally don't get the Anne Hathaway hate: she's an excellent actress and very easy on the eyes. I think she'll kick ass in this role.

Hathaway is a talented actress and should be interesting to see her take on a decent sci-fi role.
With regard to the extra tidbit, she is definitely hot and that is a very flattering picture of her.

Considering McConaughey has never worked with Nolan, it would have been great to see a new actress as well.

Noooooooo!

Sorry, yeah she's talented, but I've just never been a Hathaway fan. And I've stated before on this very site, one of the few drawbacks to Nolan is his taste in actresses compared to mine just does not mesh (like it really matters to the important people in the world?). They don't have to be hot, but I just don't find them tolerable. To be honest the only female lead I really did enjoy was Hillary Swank in Insomnia and Ellen Page in Inception...

People hated on Hathaway because she, and lets be honest, was pretty insufferable during the awards season. Didn't help that she won for a role that looked like it was designed to be a parody of gut wrenching award winning performances.

She was an excellent Catwoman, just decimated all expectations. Since Robopocalypse is on the shelf for now, it's good news that she'll be in a science fiction flick from a prolific director after all. I think DoB is absolutely right about America falling in love with Jennifer Lawrence and how her self-effacing realness made Hathaway seem all the more disingenuous by comparison. But I think Hathaway is still really cute and have actually never found her to be that annoying (I even thought she

The Hate

I think she was unfortunate to win her Oscar in the same year that America fell in love with Jennifer Lawrence. Hathaway has always come off as bit contrived and pollyanna-ish ("it came true" --barf), but Lawrence comes off as the coolest and most natural girl in the world. After Lawrence killed the acceptance (and the fall) and the post-awards moments (see: Jack Nicholson) it made Hathaway look even worse by comparison.

That said, I have never disliked a movie because Anne Hathaway was in

That said, I have never disliked a movie because Anne Hathaway was in it. She is a more than capable actress and Nolan has already shown he can get a solid performance out of her. Stoked for this movie.

Extra Tidbit

Generally, I do not find Anne Hathaway attractive. There are some moments where she appeals to me but they are in the very small minority.

I am kind of excited about this movie, but for some reason I am not happy about the casting of Mathew McConaughey...I dont know...but I dont see him paring well with Anne Hathaway in a Christopher Nolan movie. Yet, I have liked all of Christopher Nolan's recent movies..so I will wait and see.

Solid casting.

I would love to see Nolan cast James Franco in this considering he was suppose to star in Inception instead of Gordon-Levitt.

I don't see any reason to hate her. She seems to pick mostly solid work (with the bad odd movies. Bride Wars anyone?) and she's easy on the eyes. Plus, she can act.

Good choice

I dislike her public persona an inordinate amount but I always like her on film, so I'm actually happy with this casting.

I don't really get the "Hathaway Hate" that seemed to spread recently. I don't know, she seems okay. She still rides the subway occasionally. Its not like she ever said anything [link] maybe that's why. People love a good scandal.

I'll be honest...

I love Spielberg, but I am more excited for a Chritopher Nolan Sci Fi film than a Speilberg one these days. Speileberg still does very high quality work here and there but its been a bit bumpy over the past decade. If he makes a film, these days I can be relatively sure it'll be at least an 8 out of 10, if Nolan makes it I can be relatively sure it will be at least a 9.

I haven't seen Lincoln yet, but if you are talking the past decade I thought Senor Speilbergo's best film was Munich...

I don't disagree, but I think she's hot only when she has long hair. With short hair, she looks like a boy.

It's pretty cool that even though Spielberg isn't directing this, he is still producing the project.

Fuck her haters

I thought she was an awesome Catwoman, and she's one of the very best actresses of her age group. Her haters are a bunch of irrational trolls, in my opinion.

Can't wait for Interstellar.

Somehow missed the news of Matthew McConaughey involved, odd choice, but Nolan's hasn't steered me wrong yet!

Let's not give more importance to her haters than they deserve. They wanted to ruin her moment at the Oscars and they sorta did. Now let's move on.
