Michael Caine has signed onto his sixth Christopher Nolan film. After collaborating with the director on all three films of The Dark Knight trilogy, as well as Inception and the The Prestige, Caine has joined Nolan’s sci-fi pic Interstellar. Christian Bale or Cillian Murphy need to start calling their agents if they want to keep pace with Caine.

Deadline reports that Caine will be the latest addition to Interstellar, a sci-fi story conceived by Jonathan Nolan and rewritten by Christopher Nolan. Based on the scientific theory of Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne, Interstellar features “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Caine joins Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway and a very-recently courted Jessica Chastain in the picture.

Though we don’t know a lot by way of plot, we do know some technical behind-the-scenes info on Interstellar. At CinemaCon, Greg Foster, Chairman and President of IMAX Entertainment, revealed Nolan will shoot a significant portion of Interstellar with IMAX cameras. With The Dark Knight banking 28 minutes of IMAX footage and The Dark Knight Rises coming in with 78, we’re hoping we can get at least 90 minutes out of Interstellar.

Interstellar is due out November 7, 2014 in IMAX.
