Nolan

Today Paramount and Warner Bros. announced the start of production for Christopher Nolan's new movie called "The Christopher Nolan Movie With Matthew McConaughey."

Even though that might be what we care most about, the movie is actually called "Interstellar," and it boasts an all-star cast that includes our dude McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, David Oyelowo, Topher Grace, your mom, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, and Michael Caine, plus a killer concept.

"Interstellar" is based on Nolan's original idea and a previous script that his brother Jonathan developed back when Stephen Spielberg had an eye to direct it. It tells the story of "a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage." The original concept dealt with the theories of a guy named Kip Thorne, a CalTech physicist that did some amazing work with theoretical wormholes and their potential for time travel (read more about those here), so perhaps that's a clue where "Interstellar" will take us.

"Interstellar" opens in theaters on November 7, 2014 and will use a combination of regular 35mm film and IMAX, similar to "The Dark Knight" and "The Dark Knight Rises."

Hathaway Cooper

By Hannah Soo Park

Nabbing an Oscar nod might call for plenty of celebration, but Anne Hathaway and Bradley Cooper are already setting their sights onto their next big projects in today's Casting Call.

Since one can never have too much Shakespeare—especially in Hollywood—it shouldn't come as too much a surprise that a modern-day retelling of "The Taming of the Shrew" is currently in the brewing stages. And now, Hathaway is reportedly set to headline the film. This wouldn't be Hathaway's first attempt to take on the Bard's complex language. Back in 2009, she played Viola in Shakespeare in the Park's production of "Twelfth Night."

Lincoln

By Hannah Soo Park

Sometimes, an actor's willingness to nail a role is so extreme, that their "method" manages to overshadow any hype surrounding the film itself.

From adapting bizarre on-set behaviors to drastically altering their appearances, recently, we've seen an influx of stars take "getting into character" a bit too far. Here, we break down a few recent tales of method acting that have caused us to raise our eyebrows and wonder if all of the fuss is in the name of brilliance or just sheer madness -- and it looks like we're not just dealing with a Brando-inspired mumble, anymore.

Robopocalypse

By Colin Greten

The adaptation of Daniel H. Wilson's science fiction novel, "Robopocalypse" is not set to be released until 2014, but the film is already starting to get attention. Steven Spielberg has already signed on to direct and produce the DreamWorks feature, in which robots take over a computer-dependent society in the near future.

Film executive Tom Rothman has also been announced as a producer by a DreamWorks press release yesterday (via Deadline), after he resigned as Fox Filmed Entertainment's Co-Chairman and CEO last week.

Although Rothman is a big name in the Hollywood ranks, news that has fans excited is the rumor that Anne Hathaway is now the frontrunner to play the female lead alongside the already attached Chris Hemsworth ("Thor").

Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight Trilogy" always had the benefit of a brilliant ensemble cast, pulling from some of the best actors working today.

In preparation for "The Dark Knight Rises," we're taking a look back at some of the cast's best films.

Christian Bale - "The New World"
Unfairly considered the film that people forgive Terrence Malick for, "The New World" mixes the director's visually poetic style with a story older than our nation. Colin Farrell starts the film off as Captain John Smith and the lead of the film, but the movie then shifts its focus to Q'orianka Kilcher as Pocahontas and her relationship with John Rolfe, played by Bale, who fits easily into just about any time period. "The New World" comes with all the trappings of a Malick movie: stunning imagery, a dreamlike voice-over, and feelings that will stay with you long after the movie ends.

Anne HathawayAnne Hathaway is trying out a new job in the film industry: producing.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hathaway is set to both star in and produce the thriller "Puzzler" at Paramount. It is being described as similar to "Three Days of the Condor," the Robert Redford film that followed a CIA researcher who finds all his friends dead and needs to stay several steps ahead of his attackers. The movie will be written by "Tresspass" scribe Karl Gajdusek. No word yet on when it will go in front of the camera.

Anne Hathaway

Remember when Anne Hathaway took to the Oscars stage to great acclaim? No, the entirety of her hosting gig wasn't a success, but when she sang "On My Own" opposite Hugh Jackman at this year's show, she impressed everyone with her Broadway-ready vocals and moves.

Well, Anne is ready to reunite with her Oscar partner (Jackman, not Franco) as Deadline reports that the star has signed on as Fantine in an upcoming big screen adaptation of "Les Miserables," with Jackman appearing as Jean Valjean.
