Christopher Nolan (“The Dark Knight Rises”, “Inception”) is returning to science fiction with “Interstellar”. Now reports are that Casey Affleck (“Gone Baby Gone”) has joined the cast. Great news. Affleck is a great actor. He joins Matthew McConaughey (“Magic Mike”), Anne Hathaway (“Les Miserables”), Jessica Chastain (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Michael Caine (“Now You See Me”) and Bill Irwin (“Rachel Getting Married”).

Bane is “The Outsider”

Tom Hardy, best known for his roles in Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” and “The Dark Knight Rises”, is taking a lead role. Now Bane will play the lead in”The Outsider”, about an American G.I. who becomes a member of the notorious Japanese Yakuza. Joel Silver (“The Matrix”) is producing and the film will be directed by Takashi Miike. Miike will be directing his first English language film after directing films like “Audition” and “13 Assassins”.

Nolan to tackle Bond?!

This is just a rumor for now, but Christopher Nolan (“The Dark Knight Rises”,”Inception”) has been approached to direct the next James Bond movie. Talks are in the very early stages for Bond 24. But  Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson want the next film within three years, which may be hard because Nolan’s “Interstellar” comes out in 2014. But two years for a film isn’t unheard of. “Skyfall” became top-grossing Bond film ever. Sam Mendes directed that one. Daniel Craig is returning as 007.

This probably shouldn’t come as a surprise. Christopher Nolan (“Inception”, “The Prestige”) loves to work with the same actors. Now “Intersellar” will see his “The Dark Knight Rises” scene stealer Anne Hathaway join Matthew McConaughey in the upcoming sci-fi film. I suppose it’s only a matter of time until we see Michael Caine join the cast right?

At this point it’s clear: Warner Brothers has no idea what the heck they’re doing. Last month there were reports that maybe, just maybe, Christopher Nolan would return for the “Justice League of America” film and Christian Bale would be back as Batman. But now reports are that Nolan is not returning because he doesn’t want to mess with the universe that his Batman films (“Batman Begins”, “The Dark Knight”, “The Dark Knight Rises”) created. And reports are out there that Nolan is even hesitant that “Man of Steel” Superman Henry Cavill should appear either. Also, Bale is backing out. And WB is doing a page one rewrite. Yeah. We’re never seeing this film are we?

We know very little about Christopher Nolan’s (“The Dark Knight Rises”, “Inception”) next film “Interstellar”. But now we know who will be the leading actor. Matthew McConaughey is set to join the film. He joins the ranks of Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Leonardo DiCaprio and Guy Pearce as actors who have worked with Nolan. That’s quite a list if you think about it.

Yeah, this is surprising. “Godzilla” is gathering quite the cast. There’s Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, David Strathairn and Juliette Binoche. Now you can add Ken Watanabe, who audiences will likely know from “Inception”, “Batman Begins” and “The Last Samurai”. No word on what the official plot is yet, but all of a sudden, I’m getting excited for the film.

You know, the Wachowskis are a rare breed of directors. They continue to make fun and unique films unlike anything we’re seeing in cinema today. They ushered in a new era of sci-fi and action films with “The Matrix”. “Speed Racer” was an underrated family film and of course “Cloud Atlas”, the amazing, best film of last year. Now they’re back with “Jupiter Ascending”, which stars Mila Kunis, Channing Tatum and Eddie Redmayne. The big budget sci-fi epic is, from Cinema Blend: a futuristic drama set in a future world where humans have become the lowest species on the intergalactic totem pole.

And now WB is giving it a release date of July 25, 2014. This is significant for a variety of reasons. First, it’s getting a summer release that’s not August. And this is the time of year WB has traditionally released it’s biggest guns of the summer: “The Dark Knight”, “The Dark Knight Rises”, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2” and “Inception”. So yeah, they’re putting a lot of faith behind this film. It will have stiff competition. “X-Men: Days of Future Past” is getting released just a week before and Brett Ratner’s “Hercules” starring Dwayne Johnson is opening July 25 as well.

Since ending his Batman trilogy with “The Dark Knight Rises”, Christopher Nolan has been a busy guy. he served as producer on Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”. There’s those pesky rumors that he will oversee the “Justice League” film. But get ready for his first original film since “Inception” on Nov. 7, 2014. Nolan’s next film will be “Interstellar”. Not much is known about the project, but don’t be surprised to see recent frequent Nolan actors in the mix. I’d bet on Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, maybe even Christian Bale showing up for this one.

Ellen Page is one of the best actresses out there today. From her work in “Juno” to “Inception” she’s had a varied and great career so far. During her time, she’s worked with directors like Woody Allen, Jason Reitman and Christopher Nolan. Now she’ll get a chance to show what she’s learned as she’s making her directorial debut with “Miss Stevens”. The film will star Anna Faris in the title role. Both Faris and Page can do both comedy and drama but there’s no word on what tone this film will have. But I’m interested.
