Hans Zimmer back with Nolan for Interstellar

Casting news for a movie is one of the most interesting pieces of information that people scrounge for. But this casting, despite not being for any of the acting roles, would be loved and welcomed by many. For it attaches one of the greatest music composers of his era with one of the most awaited movies being made by one of the greatest directors in Hollywood at present. In other words, as Collider reports, Hans Zimmer has been attached to create the music score for the Christopher Nolan movie, Interstellar. Despite the movie slated for a November 2014 release, it seems the German composer has already begun work to create possibly another masterpiece!


Hans Zimmer is a legend in the Hollywood industry, having already composed music for more than a hundred movies. Not only are his compositions so clever in their style, it is the connection that he allows his music to create between the film and the audience which is exemplary. Of all the great works of Zimmer, who as a young boy would tie chainsaws to his piano to create different music, some of the most recent and prominent compositions include the scores for Nolan films, The Dark Knight trilogy and Inception. His music would again play an integral role in the highly anticipated Man of Steel where Nolan is the producer. So this Nolan-Zimmer partnership is just another reason to wait eagerly for Interstellar.

Earlier this year, Nolan’s Interstellar project had been announced with rumours of Mathew McConaughey to be cast in the lead role (an old post on this here). Those turned out to be true after all! So what we have so far on the movie is this… Christopher Nolan in the director’s seat, screenplay to be written in collaboration with his brother Jonathan Nolan, McConaughey to star in the lead role, other leading cast include Jessica Chastain and Anne Hathaway, Michael Caine is back with Nolan too, Hoyte van Hoytema (Tinker, Tailor Soldier, Spy) brought in as cinematographer for his first collaboration with Nolan, Mary Zophres (who has worked on many Coen brothers’ movies) onboard as costume designer and now Zimmer as music composer. Still many slots to be filled in, but the anticipation is already building…
