Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures are teaming up with Oliver’s Arrow Films, Lynda Obst Productions, and Syncopy on the epic sci-fi feature film “Interstellar”. The Emmy Award winning casting director is auditioning actors in Los Angeles for principal acting roles to supplement the major A-List stars which includes Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Casey Affleck. Additional casting for supporting and day-player roles will be taking place in Alberta, Canada. The photo-doubles and stand-ins for the movie’s stars, as well as the general extras and featured background actors will be cast in the shooting locations of Los Angeles, Alberta, Montreal, and Iceland. Principal photography gets underway on August 6, 2013.

“Interstallar” is a sci-fi film that delves into Caltech physicist Kip Thorne’s theories of gravity fields. A space travel story about a group of explorers who travel through a worm hole and into another dimension. Based on real science, the film will explore the mind-bending territory of black holes and gravity waves and touch on some of the hypotheses that Albert Einstein chased but never could prove. The details of the film’s plot are being kept under wraps, which is typical of director Chris Nolan’s projects.

Starring in “Interstellar” is Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway, two-time Academy Award nominee Jessica Chastain, Independent Spirit Awards winner Matthew McConaughey, Academy Award nominee Casey Affleck, Young Artist Awards nominee Mackenzie Foy, two-time Academy Award winner Michael Caine, Emmy Award winner Topher Grace, two-time Academy Award nominee John Lithgow, Academy Award winner Ellen Burstyn, Screen Actors Guild Awards nominee Timothée Chalamet, and Broadcast Film Critics Association Awards nominee Bill Irwin.

Three-time Academy Award nominee Christopher Nolan will direct “Interstellar” from an original screenplay written by himself and his brother, Academy Award nominee Jonathan Nolan from a treatment by Kip Thorne and Lynda Obst. Christopher Nolan was brought on board to replace Steven Spielberg, who was originally slated to helm the project. Nolan will also produce along with Primetime Emmy Award nominee Lynda Obst, and Academy Award nominee Emma Thomas. Executive Producer is Jordan Goldberg.
