Good news, sci-fi fans: We won’t have to wait too long to see what Dark Knight mastermind Christopher Nolan is working on next.

He’s been kicking a new sci-fi epic around in development the past several months, and now Interstellar has a green light and will be hitting theaters and IMAX on Nov. 7, 2014.

The script was written by Nolan’s brother Jonathan, and reportedly chronicles a “heroic interstellar voyage to the furthest reaches of our scientific understanding.” In layman’s terms, the story will reportedly feature time travel and alternate dimensions wrapped up in a deep-space package. Good, old-fashioned hard sci-fi.

It sounds like a “big idea” movie, and Nolan’s proven he can do smart sci-fi with his 2010 box-office smash Inception.

This premise sounds like it could be a lot of fun, and Nolan has the clout to get it made. Do you plan on checking this one out?
