DiCaprio To Star In Nolan’s ‘Inception’

Published 6 years ago by , Updated August 22nd, 2013 at 3:08 pm,

It was only last month that it was announced that director Christopher Nolan’s next film wasn’t going to be Batman 3 but rather a sci-fi thriller called Inception, which he himself wrote the screenplay for. But it seems this thing is already fast on it’s way to getting made as Leonardo DiCaprio is in final negotiations to star.

Not much is known about this film as of yet (which is understandable considering it was only announced recently) but what we do know is it’s described, “as a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within “the architecture of the mind.”

Hmmm, sounds intriguing…

It’s hard to say whether or not Nolan and DiCaprio are a good director/actor fit as we have virtually no information about the film yet, but what is interesting to note is this will see Nolan work for the first time in seven years alongside a leading man who isn’t Christian Bale. If you remember Nolan has worked with Bale for his last three movies (The Dark Knight, The Prestige, Batman Begins), so it will be interesting to see how he does working with someone else for a change. Although I certainly don’t doubt that two talents like Nolan and DiCaprio will work well together.

Inception is set to start shooting this year and is slated for a summer 2010 release.

  1. Leo is such a smart actor and he does a great job of picking intriguing characters and movies that are winners. No surprise he wants to team up with Nolan right now. Movie is diff, want to learn more about it.

  2. I have to admit that DiCaprio has really grown on me as he’s matured both as an actor and age-wise.

    He’s no longer the annoying young punk from Titanic. :-P


  3. As discussed in probably DiCaprio’s best role (Frank William Abagnale Jr in Catch Me If You Can):

    I concur.

  4. Just food for thought…
    Might this be a sort of “audition” for Leo to have some involvement in DK3?
    I agree with Vic, in that Leo’s acting talents have become formidable of late (Blood diamond,Aviator, Departed…), and that under Nolan’s direction will in all liklihood turn in and outstanding effort. I’ll be really interested to see how this pairing works.

  5. nowhereman,

    CN could be looking for another lead actor for batman 3. This could be some kind of “audition” to se if him and CN work well enough together for DiCaprio to maybe be a part of CN next few movies. Just a theory but anyway, Inception does sound like a great film from what little we can gather from it.
