So far, we don't now much about Interstellar, the upcoming sci-fi film by the famously tight-lipped . We do know it will star and that it will involve some wormholes and alternate dimensions. Other than that, we don't know much.
And it looks like it's going to stay that way, at least for now. But, did Nolan hint at the works that will possibly influence him during the filming of the movie? Check out his praise of the work of legendary in a recent piece by Entertainment Weekly:
You look at the [bone-throw] cut in 2001, this vast jump forward — the confidence that takes to do that is actually enormous. Would I love to do things like that in my own work? Yes. But I don't think I have the confidence to do that. Which is why there is only one Stanley Kubrick. I do believe he is inimitable. But you can be inspired. You can be inspired to aspire to be that confident.
He also ticks off a few more of his inspirations:
I think anytime you look at science fiction in movies, there are key touchstones. Metropolis. Blade Runner. 2001... Whenever you're talking about getting off the planet, 2001 is somewhat unavoidable. But there is only one 2001. So you don't want to get too near to that.
