McConaughey for Nolans INTERSTELLAR

The Magic Mike star in Nolan's next picture

Usually the name Matthew McConaughey wouldn’t even get a second glance from us here at Mania. Put that name next to Christopher Nolan’s and suddenly we are paying attention to the Magic Mike star. Though let’s be fair, McConaughey was pretty badass in Reign of Fire. The Nolan and McConaughey project is called INTERSTELLAR and so far not much else is known. Here is what we do know, it is “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.”


With a release date of next year, look for news to arrive at Comic Con with teaser trailers in the fall. 


INTERSTELLAR opens on November 7, 2014.

Well Robert since you mentioned it, I have to say this out loud.  Still to this date since seeing Reign of Fire back in theaters and on tv once in a great while.... what was McConaughey's character (while channeling his appearance of Stone Cold Steve Austin) thinking when he performed the suicide lunge of death from above some 100 ft. in the air flying outwards about a good 10-15 yards (hilariously I might add) for him to get snapped up by that dragon?  Was he having a Dragonball Z moment??  Inquiring minds 10 years still later want to know.  But have to admit, it was a good visual.

That death scene ranks right up there with Samuel L. Jackson's riotous death by shark while giving speech scene in Deep Blue Sea.

Other than my previous post, we have very little to go on with Interstellar.  Sounds like Nolan might be pulling a bit of 2001: A Space Odyessy or a more Star Trek-style type of sci-fi here. Could be interesting if we get more idea of the plot.

 Well alright, alright, alright.

Looking forward to this even though Spielberg dropped out of the director's chair.

Like McConaughey so that helps but he's not the person that comes to mind when dealing with an interstellar adventure

 

Oh and btw, Kevin Hart SUCKS!

 Second glance?  He deserved a Oscar nomination for Killer Joe!

McConaughey was great in Reign of Fire, a super tough hero who had tears in his eyes and still looked badass.

Whatever Nolan does has never really disappointed me. I look forward to him stepping back into another sci-fi movie.

It's been so long since I've seen Reign of Fire I can't remember if it was enjoyable for me. I remember the dragons looked pretty realistic.

I soooo wanna see McCoanaughey play Aquaman, I think he could actually make it work, specially if they played up the angle they went with in the Brave & The Bold cartoon...

:)

Can't have tears in your eyes @wrrlykam  if you're eaten by a dragon like he was.  Ha ha....  I'm still waiting for that explanation from anybody over his failed insane death from above maneuver.  Maybe if he had went to the William Shatner-Chuck Norris Institute of Epic Combat, he might have lived. 

Atleast Christian Bale was smart and didn't try it.  He wasn't Batman yet.  He was not yet prepared.

He had tears in his eyes way before the Dragon noshed down on him, when the locals are celebrating and Van Zan comes in and expresses his disgust at them.

Van Zan's death jump, yes it made little sense other than the guy was nuts. Likely he showing Gerard Butler how to do a flying leap at Persians.
