Matthew McConaughey to star in Christopher Nolan’s INTERSTELLAR

Almost nothing is known about the Christopher Nolan’s next film, Interstellar, other than it’s “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” Today we got our first casting news though as the Star Tribune reports that Matthew McConaughey will be playing the lead role, McConaughey stated “I’m confirming.” He wouldn’t say anything beyond that, and I’m sure all of the actors who sign on will have the super-strict NDAs that come with joining a Nolan project.

McConaughey is currently filming the HBO anthology drama series True Detective with Woody Harrelson, and recently wrapped shooting on the AIDS drama, The Dallas Buyers Club. He’ll next be seen in theaters in Jeff Nichols‘ Mud. Interstellar opens on November 7, 2014. Filming is set to begin this summer.
