There are only a handful of people in Hollywood that have the inside scoop on "Interstellar," the upcoming science fiction film from Christopher Nolan, and one of those people happens to be on a press tour right now promoting a movie.

MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Matthew McConaughey, the man tapped to star in the time travel movie, and he kept a pretty tight lid on what's going on with "Interstellar."

He couldn't even really discuss how he came to join the project for the sake of keeping company secrets. "Oh, I can tell you a little bit, but even that is sort of under lock and key. It really is," McConaughey said.

Boba Fett

You may not know this, but Dog the Bounty Hunter and intergalactic bounty hunter Boba Fett have a lot in common. Obviously, both gentlemen are bounty hunters for hire, seeking their territories most dangerous fugitives for pay, but they also have another thing in common.

Boba Fett is rumored to be the subject of a new standalone movie and Dog has a new show, "Dog & Beth: The Hunt," premiering this Sunday, April 21 on CMT.

We recently spoke with Dog and asked if he had any tips for his space-bound contemporary, and while he mistakenly referred to Fett as a newcomer, Dog offers some invaluable advice about bounty hunting.

There are some people out there who really don't agree with Disney's choice of J.J. Abrams to take over the "Star Wars" franchise with "Episode VII," and then there's the cast of "Star Trek."

Even though the cast of Abrams' first sci-fi franchise have been completely supportive of the director's jump to a rival series, Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine were able to joke a little back stage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, calling Abrams a "traitor."

But will Abrams return for the eventual "Star Trek 3"? Spock thinks that if the director wants to make it, he will.

For the upcoming comedy "Townies," Zac Efron will be making his leap to comedy, and he'll be making it in style. The film is being directed by "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" helmer Nicholas Stoller and co-stars Seth Rogen.

When MTV News' Josh Horowitz caught up with Efron backstage at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, he talked at length about the mood on set, working with Seth, and the high volume of shirtless scenes that await the audience.

"It's a pretty funny scene towards the end of the movie, but my character starts working at Abercrombie & Fitch," he said. "We were just out there having fun, total improv."

In the few weeks that "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" has been filming in Atlanta, the actors have been tight-lipped on what exactly will happen when Ron Burgundy and the Channel 4 News Team reassemble this December.

Things weren't any different on Sunday at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards when MTV News' Josh Horowitz got a chance to talk with Brick Tamland aka Steve Carell back stage. The former "Office" star was certainly vague about how things were going, but at the very least, he seemed enthusiastic about what's to come.

Since January 2012, the cast and crew of "Star Trek Into Darkness" have come under serious scrutiny to give up the secrets behind the sci-fi sequel. Who is Benedict Cumberbatch playing? How will this new story play with the alternate timeline aspects of the reboot?

Well, as Zachary Quinto and Chris Pine indicated to MTV News' Josh Horowitz back stage the 2013 MTV Movie Awards, they'll actually be able to discuss the movie soon.

"The good news is we're about two weeks away from being able to actually talk about it," Quinto said.

"It'll be nice not to have to lie anymore," Pine added. Neither actor had seen a finished cut of the film, but both will later this week.

Whedon

Don't think you can do what Joss Whedon does? The filmmaker disagrees. According to Whedon, making a movie isn't so hard. Just follow what he did with his latest effort, an adaptation of Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing."

"Get a home that's big enough to fit your camera in, and be best friends with Nathan Fillion," Whedon offered as advice when MTV spoke with him at WonderCon. "Things that any kid can do!"

Okay, sure. Becoming a feature film sensation probably isn't that easy for the average bear. But Whedon does believe that now is as good a time as any — better, even — for aspiring filmmakers to pursue their passion.

Last we heard from Keanu Reeves and his martial arts epic of a directorial debut "Man of Tai Chi," he had wrapped principal photography, which was exciting news to anyone who saw a proof of concept video that surfaced online last summer.

For his fight sequences, Reeves intended to use a highly articulate and precise mechanical arm to take the camera above, around, and into the faces of his on-screen combatants. The results of the technique, which we saw briefly in the proof of concept, were impressive enough to make "Man of Tai Chi" something to eagerly anticipate.

But MTV News got some bad news from Reeves when speaking with him about his latest film "generation Um...." It turns out that he wasn't able to use the rig to film the fight sequences in "Man of Tai Chi." Find out why after the jump!
