Christopher Nolan Scores DiCaprio for Inception

Posted on 04 March 2009 by ShepRamsey

The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan’s next film, the sci-fi action film Inception has gained its dashing male lead with Leonardo DiCaprio.

leo1According to Variety, DiCaprio is set to star and will begin shooting later this year. It’s (as of now) a departure for Nolan from working with Christian Bale after three films in a row, but it nevertheless sounds good to me. The film, announced by Warner Bros last month, was described as “a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.”

I like this casting, as DiCaprio┬átends to choose his projects fairly well and his┬ápresence usually means that a film will at least have some ambition to it even if it doesn’t exactly hit home (Revolutionary Road anyone??). I’m liking the sound of this one.

    ‘Inception’ is absolutely, indisputably, one of the best sci-fi movies of the new century!
