Anne Hathaway to star in `Interstellar`

Los Angeles: Actress Anne Hathaway is set to reunite with `The Dark Knight Rises` director Christopher Nolan on his new blockbuster `Interstellar`.

The 30-year-old Oscar-winning will star alongside Matthew McConaughey in the film, reported Deadline.

The film`s plot is being shrouded in secrecy but the adventurous movie has been in development since 2006 when Steven Spielberg devised the project along with Christopher`s brother, Jonah Nolan.

The esteemed `Lincoln` director reportedly hired Nolan to write a script for a film based on physicist Kip S Thorne`s theory that wormholes exist and can be used for space travel.

However, Spielberg left the project, allowing the Nolan brothers, who have collaborated on numerous films, including the `Dark Knight` trilogy, `The Prestige` and `Memento`, to come together once again.

The new script is thought to be a combination of Spielberg`s movie and an original idea from Christopher.

The sci-fi film, which is a joint production between Paramount and Warner Bros, is being produced by Nolan, Emma Thomas and Lynda Obst.
