Though Christopher Nolan has been keeping quiet about the specifics of his upcoming Interstellar, it's said the film will explore the theoretical physics of renowned astrophysicist Kip Thorne, sending its multitude of stars on a wild journey through wormholes and into other dimensions. And, if a new report is to be believed, it will all be because of corn.

The Fort Macleod Gazette (via), always a reliable source for cereal crop information, brings the news in a story about Nolan shooting on the town's Main Street. According to their unnamed source, Interstellar is shooting under the title Flora's Letter, and it's set in a future in which climate change has made it impossible to cultivate anything but the mighty corn plant; as such, "scientists embark on a journey through a worm hole into other dimensions in search of somewhere other crops can be grown." Man's first step into other dimensions begins with Anne Hathaway realizing you can't make a good burrito with a corn tortilla.
