Hans Zimmer To Score Interstellar For Christopher Nolan


Christopher Nolan is known for being loyal to his team of collaborators, and you can’t say that doesn’t make sense. After all, if you’ve worked with someone and had success before, why change things up? One of the most successful elements of Nolan’s recent films have been the scores, and that’s due to one of the best composers of our time: Hans Zimmer. So it comes as absolutely no surprise that Nolan and Zimmer are teaming up yet again for Nolan’s next directorial feature, Interstellar.

The two have previously worked together on The Dark Knight Trilogy and Inception, and Zimmer is also known for his work on The Lion King and Pirates Of The Caribbean among many, many others. He recently finished the score for the Nolan-produced Man Of Steel which hits theaters on June 14th. He didn’t take any time to relax though, as he told Collider he is already working on the Interstellar music. Check out that quote below.

“I wrote something…and I’m writing that.  So, yes, we have started.”

It’s interesting that he’s already working on the music, as the film isn’t set to release until November of 2014, and filming won’t start until later this year. Then again, if Nolan has a focused vision and is able to properly convey that to Zimmer (which I’m sure he does and I’m sure he can) then there’s no reason why Zimmer can’t start crafting another memorable score.

There still isn’t a ton of concrete information known about the plot of the film other than Nolan has made a few changes to his brother Jonathan’s story, which is based on the work of Caltech physicist Kip Thorne. What we do know is Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, and Michael Caine make up the confirmed cast, which is enough to have us excited in itself.
