The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan’s next film, the sci-fi action film Inception has gained its dashing male lead with Leonardo DiCaprio.
According 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 tends to choose his projects fairly well and his presence 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.
