Hathaway's potential casting isn't a surprise. If you've covered Mr. Nolan and his films over the years like I have, you know that he likes to cast (and work with) folks he's familar with. How long before y'all think his "Good Luck Charm" -- Sir Michael Caine -- snags a gig on the project?! Below you'll find the press release sent to BOF by Paramount/Warner Bros. back in March.
HOLLYWOOD, CA (March 8, 2013) – Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures jointly announced today that writer/director Christopher Nolan’s “INTERSTELLAR” will be co-produced and distributed by the two studios, with Paramount Pictures handling Domestic distribution and Warner Bros.

Directed and written by Academy Award-nominee Nolan (“INCEPTION,” “THE DARK KNIGHT RISES”), “INTERSTELLAR” is based on a script by Jonathan Nolan. The film will be produced by Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan of Syncopy Films and Obst of Lynda Obst Productions. Kip Thorne will executive produce. The film will depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.
