The British filmmaker attempted to use practical locations rather than CGI whenever possible because it makes the final product "a much higher quality."
Director Christopher Nolan as usual is making a conscious effort to keep any information about his next project under wraps.
However, the 43 year-old filmmaker recently opened up about his upcoming futuristic thriller 'Interstellar'.
While onstage at CinemaCon on Wednesday (March 26th) Nolan revealed, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, that the film will involve wormhole travel.
It sounds like this may be just as confusing as his 2010 dream fantasy movie 'Inception', which starred Leonardo DiCaprio.
"It's something that really looks at who we are as people," Nolan said to the crowd.
He also spoke about working closely with producer Kip Thorne, who is a theoretical physicist and helped with the science behind the wormholes.
Little more was said about the plot of the film, and so all what was established was that it follows a team of space explorers who use wormholes to travel to remote areas of the universe.
However, Nolan did comment on the style of which 'Interstellar' is being shot and as a self-proclaimed fan of the "golden age of the blockbuster," in which a "family film could have universal appeal," this is what he strives to achieve.
The British director will capture this by refraining from using CGI as much as possible, he had his design and production crew build the interior of spaceships on set to create a much more realistic end product.
"I want to capture as much in camera as possible," he said "It's a much higher quality than if you shoot on a green screen."
The film's lead character is played by Academy-Award winner Matthew McConaughey, and Nolan also explained the reason behind casting the 44 year-old.
"I needed someone who is very much an everyman, someone the audience could experience the story with," Nolan said. "He's just a phenomenal, charismatic presence in the movie. His performance is shaping up to be extraordinary."
'Interstellar' is slated to hit theatres on November 7th, 2014.
