Casey Affleck joins Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan's Interstellar

Casey Affleck/Christopher Nolan

The expectations for Christopher Nolan's sci-fi film INTERSTELLAR are already extremely high but the director isn't helping things by hiring a bunch of fantastic actors and actresses for the movie. In an interview with Elle, Casey Affleck revealed that he has signed on to the intriguing sounding project as well.

I’ve got a movie coming out at Thanksgiving called Out of the Furnace, and I’m going to work on a Chris Nolan movie in the fall.

Since Nolan is just concentrating on INTERSTELLAR right now it's a pretty safe bet that Casey Affleck is talking about that film. He joins Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Michael Caine and Bill Irwin.

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.

Casey Affleck is a fantastic addition to INTERSTELLAR. His performances in films like THE KILLER INSIDE ME and THE ASSASSINATION OF JESSE JAMES BY THE COWARD ROBERT FORD were stellar and I hope he really gets to shine in a big movie like this.

INTERSTELLAR will be in theaters November 7th, 2014.
