Christopher Nolan - Christopher Nolan to direct and produce Interstellar?

Christopher Nolan is reportedly set to direct and produce 'Interstellar'.

The 'Dark Knight Rises' director is in talks to helm the new sci-fi movie which follows a group of explorers who find themselves time-travelling through alternate dimensions after climbing through a wormhole.

The Hollywood Reporter states the script for the film was written by Christopher's brother John - who took inspiration from theoretical physicist, gravitational physicist and astrophysicist Kip Thorne's scientific theories.

A contract for the notorious director is said to have been put together over the last few months and has been described as very ''complex''.

Although 'Interstellar' has been set up at Paramount Pictures, the feature will work in conjunction with Warner Bros, the company with which Christopher made all three of his 'Batman' movies as well as 'Inception' and 'Insomnia'.

It was rumoured last year that 'E.T' director Steven Spielberg was to direct the upcoming film with Lynda Obst producing, however it is unclear at this time whether he will still be involved in another way.

Christopher's next big screen film role is as producer on the Superman reboot 'Man of Steel', directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, and he admitted last year that bringing the superhero to life was far more difficult than working on Batman.

He said: ''In my honest appraisal, taking on Superman and creating that world is far more difficult than creating the world of 'The Dark Knight'. He has a lot of finishing to do on the movie - it has a very long post-production schedule because, unlike Batman, Superman flies.''
