Let's face it: the question was never "Will Michael Caine join the cast of 'Interstellar?'", it was "When will we hear about Michael Caine joining the cast of 'Interstellar?'" The answer is right now. The legendary actor has officially signed on to join the mysterious science fiction film and it will mark the sixth time he's worked with director Christopher Nolan.
Well, this is quite the career rebound. Matthew McConaughey, after a couple of years of solid character work -- and a lot of stolen scenes -- is now back in the big leagues as it appears Christopher Nolan wants him to be the lead in his next film 'Interstellar.' Not bad for an almost wash-out, yeah?
Back in January, word was that 'The Dark Knight Rises' director Christopher Nolan was looking to follow up his Batman trilogy and 'Man of Steel' production duties with the original sci-fi space adventure film 'Interstellar.' Now, it's official and the project, produced through Warner Bros. and Paramount, has a 2014 release date just a couple months after Marvel's own space movie 'Guardians of the Galaxy.'
