Matthew McConaughey discusses ‘Interstellar’ audition, Christopher Nolan, says it’s ‘ambitious’

interstellar-logoFans are highly anticipating Christopher Nolan’s first film after the Batman trilogy: the sci-fi film Interstellar.

Now star Matthew McConaughey talks about the film and process during an interview with Variety.

“He (Nolan) came up to me and said, ‘Mud. I love that movie.’ I sat down with him for about 2½ hours at his house. Not one word came up about Interstellar. I walked out not sure what to think. I mean, he’s not a guy who takes general meetings.”

The True Detective star praises the Dark Knight director and what he’s accomplishing with Interstellar.

 “Here’s what I can tell you, It’s the most ambitious thing he’s ever done. And he’s done some ambitious stuff. … There’s no f***ing around on set. He’s a great problem solver. In that way, he’s very indie. Here’s a guy who could have whatever budget he wants — and we finished shooting early.”

The audition process was not exactly by-the-book, but it ended with McConaughey being offered the role:
