UPDATE: E! Online is reporting that that Chastain’s reps are denying her involvement in the series as is HBO.
HBO’s True Detective has had everyone guessing who will be taking over next season now that Detectives Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) have left the scene. It was known from the start of the anthology that each season would feature a new set of characters particularity the leads. The news tonight is that Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty) has been offered a lead role in the upcoming second season.
The successful show, which is going for a Best Drama Series instead of Miniseries at this year’s Emmy Awards, would certainly nail it with Chastain I think. She can play a hard character just as well as a male counterpart. Brad Pitt was also rumored to be in line for a role – now that would make an awesome team.
Nerdist reported that Chastain has been offered a lead in season two of writer Nic Pizzolatto’s second season of True Detective, but has yet to accept. We will keep you posted, for now Chastain can next be seen in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar.
FYI: Chastain has earned two Oscar nominations, for The Help, and Zero Dark Thirty.
A brand new trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar is here and it does a great job at setting up the intensity. The visuals and score (“I Found A Reason” by Dario Marianelli from the V For Vendetta) are what I noticed most; you can’t save the world and your kids without them. We know (thanks to some exposition) that Matthew McConaughey is off to space, and that’s just great. It’s basically a longer tease of what’s going on here, they won’t say climate change, but that’s my guess. Politics man.
Interstellar chronicles the adventures of a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage.
The film also stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Michael Caine, David Oyelowo, Wes Bentley, John Lithgow, Ellen Burstyn, Topher Grace, David Gyasi, Mackenzie Foy, Bill Irwin, Timothée Chalamet, and Matt Damon.

It’s no secret that director Christopher Nolan only lets us know what he wants us to know while he’s making a movie. In the case of Interstellar we still don’t know too much more than it has wormholes and a group of explorers who make use of a newly discovered wormhole to surpass “the limitations on human space travel and conquer the vast distances involved in an interstellar voyage”. Take that in for a moment if you have to.
“All I will say is this: before I began, last January, Chris said to me, ‘Hans, I will write one page of text for you. And you will give me just one day. Just write whatever comes to you from this one single page. It [the page] wasn’t about the film… in a peculiar way, what Chris wrote down that day, and what he wanted from me, had more to do with my story than the plot of the movie. He knows how to get under my skin. That’s the game we play.”
That is a strange form of collaboration isn’t it? Well if Nolan does that with him often it’s working, because Nolan’s films have had some seriously notable scores from Zimmer including Inception and The Dark Knight. I’d love to see what was on that one page though.

The first trailer for director Christopher Nolan’s new film Interstellar is here and it’s quite the tease. The sci-fi flick stars a stellar (ah?) cast and is believed to involve “time travel” and “alternate dimensions”, so that’s awesome. The film features a team of space travelers going through a newly discovered wormhole on a voyage through to transcend previous limitations on human space travel.
The project began development in June 2006 when Paramount Pictures and filmmaker Steven Spielberg announced plans for a science fiction film based on a treatment by Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist. That fact among others you can read in our “What is Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar?” post.

Interstellar opens November 7, 2014.
When a Christoper Nolan movie is set to be released, it’s safe to say anticipation is high. The directors track record is one of the best of the last fifteen years, he’s making great movie is what I’m getting at. His next film is Interstellar, and while a lot of what the movie end up being is still up for speculation, we do know a few things that lead us to believe he’s once again in line to make something great.
The plot is believed to involve “time travel” and “alternate dimensions”, so that’s awesome. The film features a team of space travelers going through a wormhole, when the wormhole is newly discovered, a team of explorers embark on a voyage through it to transcend previous limitations on human space travel. It’s said to be based mainly on the scientific theories and script treatment of renowned theoretical physicist, Kip Thorne.
This will be Christopher Nolan’s first major film project since completing his Batman trilogy and “taking a break” when he produced Man of Steel. Interstellar will be filmed with a combination of 35mm anamorphic and IMAX film photography. Principal photography began in August 2013 in Alberta, Canada.
Recently it became known that Matt Damon will be playing a minor role in Interstellar, as he’ll only be on set for two weeks in Iceland out of the four month shoot. The actor joins an incredible cast as you can see below.
Release date: November 7, 2014
Directed by: Christopher Nolan
Written by: Christopher Nolan, Jonathan Nolan
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Casey Affleck, Topher Grace, Wes Bentley, David Oyelowo, Ellen Burstyn, Matt Damon, Michael Caine, John Lithgow.
The Fort Macleod Gazette is reporting that the movie details the toll climate change has taken on agriculture, with corn the last crop to be cultivated. The scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown.
In regards to how this project came to be and how the likes of Friday the 13th and South Park are related, let’s take a look:
- The project began development in June 2006 when Paramount Pictures and filmmaker Steven Spielberg announced plans for a science fiction film based on a treatment by Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist.
- By March 2007, Jonathan Nolan was hired to write a screenplay for Interstellar.
- In January 2013, Christopher Nolan entered negotiations with Paramount and Warner Bros. to direct Interstellar.
- By the following March, Nolan was confirmed to direct Interstellar, which would be produced under his label Syncopy and Lynda Obst Productions.
- Though Paramount and Warner Bros. are traditionally rival studios, Warner Bros., who released Nolan’s Batman films and works with Nolan’s Syncopy, sought a stake in Nolan’s production of Interstellar for Paramount. Warner Bros. agreed to give Paramount its rights to co-finance the next film in the Friday the 13th horror franchise and to have a stake in a future film based on the TV series South Park.

Zach Galifianakis’ Between Two Ferns is back with a new Oscar Buzz Edition featuring Jennifer Lawrence, Naomi Watts, Christoph Waltz, Anne Hathaway, Amy Adams, Jessica Chastain, Sally Field, Bradley Cooper and another special guest from Lincoln.
You can watch Part 1 and 2 below!
That’s really all I have to say about the nominations, Ben Affleck got snubbed. Argo was one of the best movies of the year and he didn’t get nominated for directing (although it’s up for Best Picture). Don’t take this year’s nominations seriously; Flight got a nomination for writing.
The 85th Academy Awards will take place on February 24th, check out the nominations below:
Here is the final trailer for director Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty, which has been getting a lot of attention due in part to Chastain’s performance. Chastain is all over this trailer which has some new footage and a great cover version of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters by the Scala and Kolacny Brothers children’s choir.
Zero Dark Thirty also stars Kyle Chandler, Chris Pratt, Mark Strong, Scott Adkins, Joel Edgerton and James Gandolfini.
The film opens in limited release on December 19th, then expands nationwide on January 11th.
For a decade, an elite team of intelligence and military operatives, working in secret across the globe, devoted themselves to a single goal: to find and eliminate Osama bin Laden. Zero Dark Thirty reunites the Oscar winning team of director-producer Kathryn Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (The Hurt Locker) for the story of history’s greatest manhunt for the world’s most dangerous man.
Creepy little girls, well that’s just great. The trailer is just missing a slow motion skip-rope scene to keep me up tonight. Mama is a movie produced by Guillermo del Toro and starring Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as a couple who takes in two sisters discovered living alone in the woods five years after the mysterious death of their parents.
If supernatural scares are your thing, you will enjoy this one. Guillermo del Toro doesn’t disappoint as director ( Pan’s Labyrinth) or producer (The Orphanage) which is another factor to consider.
Check out the first trailer for Mama below, the movie has a January 13th, 2013 release date.
Lawless is looking better and better, this new trailer pretty much hits it on the head with just what it’s going to offer moviegoers. There’s blood, guns, and even a tar and feathering. That’s the Depression-era for you, and the bootlegging Bondurant brothers are the ones you have to look out for.
Lawless stars Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Guy Pearce, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, and Gary Oldman. The film opens August 31st.
