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.
