Christopher Nolan Set For Inception

He's making a sci-fi action film

Rejoice and be glad, for Christopher Nolan has decided upon a follow-up to the billion-dollar success of The Dark Knight, and is making a sci-fi action film called Inception that he wrote himself.

The plan is to shoot the film this summer for release in summer 2010, with Nolan directing and producing (along with his partner Emma Thomas). But what else do we know about the film? Well, pretty much nothing: it's said to be "a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind", which we're assuming is not saying it's a remake of The Cell, even though that's the closest example to that particular definition we've got.

At this point, we'd be pleased if Nolan said he was planning to direct a movie adaptation of his weekly shopping list, so he's positively spoiling us with a sci-fi action film. He is also, incidentally, attached to direct a big-screen version of The Prisoner before he possibly, maybe, perhaps returns for another Batman film. We'll keep you updated as we hear more.
