Zero Dark Thirty star Jessica Chastain is in talks to star alongside Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway in Christopher Nolan‘s upcoming sci-fi Interstellar, a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding. Chastain will reportedly star as the third lead in a story about group of explorers who travel through a wormhole.
First written by Jonathan Nolan as a directing vehicle for Steven Spielberg, the film is inspired by the theories of theoretical physicist, gravitational physicist and astrophysicist Kip Thorne.
