Jonah Nolan will write Spielberg's Interstellar

Bearded moviemonger Steven Spielberg has chosen Jonah Nolan (brother of director Chris Nolan) to pen his next SF thriller: Interstellar.

Jonah was the scribe behind the short story that became Memento, and helped adapt The Prestige, as well as contributing to the script for Batman Begins follow-up The Dark Knight.

Empire reports that Interstellar will be about the concept of travelling in time using wormholes. Can we expect lots of flashbacks and memory conundrums, as per Memento and The Prestige? We can't wait to find out...
