Hans Zimmer Is Already Scoring Chris Nolan's Interstellar

Hans_Zimmer Frequent Christopher Nolan collaborator Hans Zimmer will score his upcoming sci-fi Interstellar, Collider reports. Zimmer, who composed Nolan's complete "Dark Knight" trilogy, Inception and the Nolan produced Man Of Steel, has already begun work on Interstellar's music, despite filming not yet being underway. An original script from The Dark Knight and The Prestige writer Jonathan Nolan (albeit based on scientific theories by Caltech physicist and relativity expert Kip S. Thorne), Interstellar will follow a group of explorers who go through a wormhole and will deal with time travel and alternate dimensions. The official plot synopsis we have so far;
The film will depict a heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.
Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Michael Caine star, with more names expected to be announced soon. At CinemaCon, it was revealed by Greg Foster (Chairman and President of IMAX Entertainment) that a significant amount of the film will be shot with IMAX cameras. The Dark Knight racked up 28 minutes of IMAX footage and The Dark Knight Rises over twice that length at 78, so another go with the IMAX camera comes as no surprise. Although the likes of Zimmer and Caine will bring familiarity to the Nolan picture, it is important to note that Interstellar will look different from the rest of Nolan's filmography. His long-time cinematographer Wally Pfister, one of the best in the game, has since graduated to become a director in his own right and is shooting his directorial debut movie Transcendence with Johnny Depp in the lead. Nolan has instead hired an interesting replacement in Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy's Hoyte Van Hoytema... which is a mouth-watering prospect in its own right. Interstellar will hit theatres November 7th, 2014. Nolan produced Man Of Steel opens in less than two weeks. Here's a sample of Zimmer's eagerly anticipated score...
