Warner Bros is in talks with Marion Cotillard (La Vie en rose, Public Enemies), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins, Sunshine) and Ellen Page (Juno) are in talks to join the cast of Christopher Nolan‘s scifi action film Inception. Leonardo DiCaprio is already signed on to star. THR has a couple character-centric details: DiCaprio’s character is mentioned as a CEO-type, Cotillard is his wife, Page is a young college grad student and DiCaprio’s sidekick.
Nolan and crew are keeping the details of the project under wraps, and the only thing we know so far is the movie is being described as “a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.” So your guess is as good as mine.If anyone has any details about this project, please shoot me an email.
All we know is that Nolan approached Warner Bros with the project, and they preemptively snapped it up before Nolan could approach other studios. Which is kind of obvious, because they want/need him to return for a third Batman film. Inception hits theaters on July 16th 2010.
Discuss: What do you think of the casting choices thus far?
