It’s been nearly six years since Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi space epic starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway, graced silver screens worldwide. In the half-decade-plus following its October 2014 debut, it seems everyone has wondered whether Nolan would go back into the depths of space, toy with time, and tug on heartstrings with an Interstellar sequel. But what are the chances that will actually happen? Will we ever get to see Interstellar 2?
With McConaughey’s widowed engineer and ex-NASA pilot Joseph Cooper and Hathaway’s scientist Dr. Amelia Brand at its center, Interstellar followed the crew of the spaceship Endurance as it traveled through a wormhole near Saturn in order to survey 12 worlds that humanity could move to, abandoning the increasingly uninhabitable Earth. The film grossed nearly $678 million at the global box office, and earned accolade upon accolade during the 2014-2015 awards season including an Oscar for Best Visual Effects.
Well, Nolan hasn’t confirmed or denied that a second Interstellar is in the stars, but there’s some information lingering out there that helps us answer the big question.
McConaughey revealed in November of 2014 that he’s open to signing on for a second Interstellar movie, should the opportunity arise and if everything about the project feels right. When Sky News asked him whether viewers would get to see an Interstellar sequel with him reprising his role, McConaughey was open to the idea.
McConaughey’s comments obviously show that he’s interested in making an Interstellar sequel or at least was, as of November 2014. That McConaughey is down to do a sequel shows that he truly believes in Interstellar as a property and, you know, actor enthusiasm is a pretty big thing when it comes to getting a follow-up film going. Keep watching the video to see if will we ever see Interstellar 2?
