Divorces can often be messy, with parties warring over who gets to keep the dog, the rare stamp collection, and in some cases the kids. Luckily the split between Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. has been much more amicable. After eight years of co-financing marital bliss, the studios decided to go their separate ways, but instead of squabbling over who gets one of the prized assets, 's Interstellar, the studios came to an agreement and Legendary will retain a hefty stake in the sci-fi project.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Legendary originally wanted to board the Man of Steel sequel gravy train, but Warner's CEO Kevin Tsujihara wanted to keep the studio's DC properties for themselves. They offered up a stake in Interstellar instead and considering Nolan's last three movies, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises grossed nearly $3 billion combined, Legendary CEO Thomas Tull had no hesitation accepting the offer.
Interstellar is currently shooting in Alberta, Canada and is slated for release November 7, 2014.
