Interstellar script
Interstellar (2014)
Synopsis: In Earth's future, a global crop blight and second Dust Bowl are slowly rendering the planet uninhabitable. Professor Brand (Michael Caine), a brilliant NASA physicist, is working on plans to save mankind by transporting Earth's population to a new home via a wormhole. But first, Brand must send former NASA pilot Cooper (Matthew McConaughey) and a team of researchers through the wormhole and across the galaxy to find out which of three planets could be mankind's new home.

Ansen sits, alone, on one side of a conference table.

The other side is filled with GOVERNMENT MEN -- NSA mostly,

some DIA. The door opens and his assistant steps in. Armed

guards pat him down, then shove him into a seat.


Is that really necessary?

One of the NSA agents leans forward.


You've been complaining for years

that the government doesn't take

your project seriously enough, Doctor.


You can't have it both ways.

Ansen motions to his assistant, who turns on a projector.

On-screen, we see the familiar pulse and echoes.


Yesterday morning, our facility in

Hanford identified this signal: a

neutron star colliding with a

supermassive black hole. We went

through the last year's data and

triangulated the source.

The pulse is translated into a crude animatic of a neutron

star circling into the black hole.


We know that, Doctor. What we don't

know is why, according to your

numbers, this event took place right

here in our own solar system.

Suddenly, the image overlays the sun, the earth, and the

rest of our solar system around the black hole.
