Par, WB enter Nolan’s galaxy

Christopher Nolan’s next movie is so big, two studios are stepping up to produce and distribute.

Paramount and Warner Bros. will co-produce and co-distribute Nolan’s “Interstellar,” with plans to release it on Nov. 7, 2014, in theaters and Imax. The date marks only the second time — first was 2006’s “The Prestige” — that a Nolan film has launched during the fall.

Paramount will distribute the film domestically, with Warners handling international rights.

Warners has distributed almost all of Nolan’s films worldwide, opting for a summer release each time. And while those dates have proven wildly successful at the box office, Nolan has yet to receive much consideration on the awards front.

To date, the fall launch pad pits “Interstellar” against an untitled Disney Animation film, with Lionsgate’s penultimate “Hunger Games” and Fox-DreamWorks Animation’s “Happy Smekday!” slated to bow later that month.

Nolan will write and direct the film, which is based off a script by Jonathan Nolan.

Nolan will produce with Emma Thomas through their Syncopy Films, along with Lynda Obst through Obst Productions.
