Spielberg Goes Interstellar
Director discusses wormhole project.
July 19, 2006 - Steven Spielberg's wormhole-themed sci-fi movie has a title: Interstellar. The celebrated director revealed the name in an interview with the SpielbergFilms.com website and confessed that a growing interest in science has drawn him to the picture.
"[The wormhole]was a concept that blew my mind, and it was not foreign to me. My father […] is sort of an amateur astrophysicist. I took him with me to what I guess you'd call the roundtable, with some of the foremost computer physicists and astrophysicists, and behavioral psychologists from around this country and it really appealed to me based on all of my dad's influence, with all of the reading I've done over the years. You know I produced the Stephen Hawking documentary [A Brief History of Time] with Errol Morris a number of years ago.
Spielberg re-iterated that he has a script treatment prepared by Kip S. Thorne, a leading Caltech physicist who specializes in exotic phenomena such as wormholes. There's little doubt the story will get re-worked by one of Spielberg's favourite writers; earlier in the interview, Spielberg referred to his pal David Koepp, who is currently tied up finishing the Indiana Jones 4 script. Spielberg also mentioned his longtime collaborator Frank Darabont, who penned an earlier Indy 4 screenplay. "Frank's a very close friend of mine and we're collaborating on a number of things," said Spielberg. Could Interstellar turn out to be one of them?
Spielberg hasn't said when work on Interstellar will begin in earnest. A lot depends on how the timing of his other big projects — Indiana Jones 4, Jurassic Park 4, and his Abraham Lincoln film — works out.
