Deadline is reporting that Jessica is joining Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConnaughey on upcoming Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi flick “Interstellar“.
Of course, details are being kept quiet but we do that the movie originates from a long developing script by Jonathan Nolan, with Chris pouring his own special sauce on it with a rewrite, in a movie that will deal with time travel and alternate dimensions, telling the story of a group of explorers who go through a wormhole.

Shooting begins later this year in IMAX and movie is set to open on November 7, 2014.

As you can see, we have a brand new look here. It’s a bit lighter than our previous one and features the beautiful session Jessica did to Empire back in 2011. The gallery has also a matching theme so be sure to check it out. I hope you like it as much as we did.

The Hollywood Reporter just broke the news that Jessica is attached to star in The Zookeeper’s Wife, the adaptation of the novel by Diana Ackerman.
Niki Caro has come aboard to direct the World War II story, which Panorama is financing and producing. The project is expected to hit the market in Cannes, according to several sources.
Scion’s Jeff Abberley, Tollin Prods’ Mike Tollin and Kim Zubiak and Rowe/Miller’s Diane Miller-Levin and Robbie Rowe-Tollin are producing on the movie.
Wife is the true account of keepers of the Warsaw Zoo, who during the Nazi invasion helped save hundreds.
When the Nazi army overran Warsaw, destroying the city and its zoo, Jan and Antonina Zabinski began smuggling Jews into empty cages. The Zabinskis also took in around a dozen into their home.
While danger was always present, and her husband a part of the Polish resistance, Antonina Zabinksi kept a mix of humans and surviving animals (lynxes and hyena pups, among them) humming in a one-of-a-kind community that included socializing and even the occasional piano concert.
The book was published by W.W. Norton in 2007.

We reported last month that Jessica was front-runner to portrait the Tarzan leading lady, but it seems this won’t happen. Deadline is reporting that Warner shut down plans to make the film this year, and are shuttering the production office.
Sounds like it had to do with a high budget they just couldn’t reduce to the level that made the studio comfortable. Casting and timing could also have been an issue, as word is the studio had been courting Jamie Foxx to play the film’s third lead but hadn’t made a deal. This is the film that Warner Bros has tried to get going for years, even hiring scribes Adam Cozad and Craig Brewer to separately script their own visions for the franchise.
Nobody was commenting officially, but insiders at the studio tell me they are trying again for 2014 and that Yates is still in the fold. The studio hadn’t greenlit the film and did not have pay or play deals, so it wasn’t that hard to apply the brakes. Warner Bros is always voracious for franchises that can play on a global stage, but the studio also has been pretty bold about unplugging films that cost too much or don’t get the starpower.
