Christopher Nolan has a knack for taking a genre and creating something unique and fresh out of it. Batman Begins offered an intense and gritty comic book origin story. The Dark Knight was a crime thriller set in the Batman universe. Inception was a heist movie in a sci-fi dream world. And Memento was a noir revenge movie that put the audience into the damaged perspective of its protagonist. Now with Interstellar, Nolan has set his sights on conquering space.

A few years ago, two things happened. My alarm ringtone was changed to Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey (the music from the trailer for Inception) and I stumbled upon Interstellar’s IMDb page. At the time, Interstellar was one of many movies in line to be directed by Steven Spielberg. Those movies included War Horse, The Adventures of Tintin and Lincoln.
From time to time I would check on Interstellar‘s status and be met with disappointment as Spielberg would pick a new project. But after seeing Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s zero gravity fight sequence in Inception, an idea struck me and took hold. Christopher Nolan needs to direct Interstellar.
