Christopher Nolan’s next film will not have anything to do with DC Comics of Batman. The director will follow-up The Dark Knight Rises with Interstellar, a co-production between Warner Bros. and Paramount.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two studios announced that they expect to release the film on Nov. 7, 2014. It will also be released in IMAX.
The project was first reported on last month, when THR confirmed that Nolan had committed to make it after finishing his Batman trilogy.
The Wrap reports that Paramount will distribute the film in the U.S., while Warner Bros. will release the film internationally. Nolan and Warner Bros. have a long relationship, since the studio released all three Batman films and his 2011 film Inception, which earned him a Best Director Oscar nomination.
Jonathan Nolan, Nolan’s brother and longtime collaborator, wrote the script. Nolan’s wife, Emma Thomas, is co-producing with Nolan. As usual with Nolan projects, little is known about the plot, but Warner and Paramount called it “a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.”
Warner Bros. Pictures Group president Jeff Robinov called Nolan “truly one of the great auteurs working in film today.”
