Anne Hathaway is aiming to reunite with Christopher Nolan on the British director's forthcoming science-fiction film, Interstellar.

Hathaway, who starred as Catwoman in Nolan's final Batman film The Dark Knight Rises in 2012, is in talks to take an unspecified role in the cosmic project, according to the Hollywood Reporter. She would join Matthew McConaughey, who confirmed last week that he was joining the cast.

Interstellar has previously been described as a complex and multi-layered original science-fiction film about time travel and alternate dimensions, in which a group of space explorers travel through a wormhole. It will be written by the British film-maker's younger brother and regular collaborator Jonathan, riffing off scientific theories developed by Kip Thorne, a theoretical physicist, gravitational physicist and astrophysicist at Caltech, the California Institute of Technology.

If Hathaway signs on, Interstellar will be her first project since winning the best supporting actress Oscar last month for her portrayal of Fantine in the Tom Hooper musical Les Misérables.
