Anyone who's been reading this blog so far knows that I love a good sci-fi story, which is why I'm a little confused as to why this is the first I've heard of this news. From Borys Kit of the Hollywood Reporter:
Ken Watanabe and Tom Hardy are
boarding Christopher Nolan's "Inception" for Warner Bros.
The story, which Nolan wrote, is a contemporary sci-fi actioner set
within the architecture of the mind, with Leonardo DiCaprio as
a CEO type. Watanabe will play the film's villain, a man who is blackmailing
Hardy is a member of DiCaprio's team. The duo join a cast that includes Joseph
Gordon-Levitt, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page and Marion
Watanabe's deal reunites him with Nolan, with whom he collaborated on
2005's "Batman Begins."Nolan and the studio are aiming for a summer shoot ahead
of a 2010 release. Nolan and Emma Thomas are producing through their
Warners-based Syncopy Films shingle.
A sci-fi action movie, directed by Christopher Nolan and starring Ellen Page, Leonardo DiCaprio, Cillian Murphy AND Joseph Gordon-Levitt?
Right now, I don't have a whole lot information on this. Until I get a glimpse of the trailer, however, I think this movie just might be worth the price of admission for the incredibly awesome cast alone. It's not often you get so much talent together like that. Wow.
So yeah, hopefully more on this as it develops.
