The Rosie Project: Jennifer Lawrence is attached to star in The Rosie Project, a romantic comedy based on a book by Graeme Simsion. First published in 2013, the Australian author's novel follows a genetics professor with Asperger's syndrome who seeks a marriage mate. Lawrence will play Rosie, a woman who doesn't meet any of the professor's "qualifications" yet attracts him anyway. Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who wrote (500) Days of Summer, have written a screenplay. [The Hollywood Reporter]

 

Interstellar

Christopher Nolan: Rumor has it that filmmaker Christopher Nolan has completed a "comprehensive draft" of a screenplay that would serve as a follow-up to 2014's Interstellar. No other details have been offered, and without confirmation it serves as little more than a reminder that Nolan likes to keep things close to the vest about his future projects.
