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.'

Previously described as a movie involving "time travel and alternate dimensions in a story that sees a group of explorers travel through a wormhole," 'Interstellar' is now being portrayed as "a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding," via a recent press release.

It definitely seems like a story more akin with the likes of 'Star Trek' and Marvel's upcoming 'Guardians of the Galaxy,' and considering Nolan's track record for churning out box office hits for Warner Bros., we can't help but wonder if 'Interstellar' will be the hit of 2014. He's already the studio's golden child, now coming off of raving early reviews for 'Man of Steel' and a report that he'll be the "godfather" of sorts for the 'Justice League' movie. We'll just have to wait and see for proof of 'Interstellar's' epicness when it hits November 7, 2014.

'Interstellar' is based on a script by Jonathan Nolan, and will be produced by Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan, with Kip Thorne as an executive producer.
