Michael Caine Set For Inception
He's the latest for Chris Nolan's sci-fi

If it’s a Christopher Nolan film, then it must star Michael Caine. So has it been written – and lo, Sir Maurice Micklewhite has indeed signed on to join the cast of Nolan’s mysterious sci-fi, Inception.

The movie will be the fourth in a row for the Caine/Nolan team, following Batman Begins, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight. Rumour has it that Nolan is planning to digitally insert footage of Caine into Memento, Following and Insomnia.

As has been the case with Inception since, well, its inception, Caine hasn’t been able to spill word one about the project or his character. "I have a little part in it, yes,” he told “I think I'll work about three days. It'll be extraordinary, wait until you see this one. I think if I say another word he's going to kill me!"

Well, we wouldn’t want that, so let’s move on. Caine joins an already pretty damned impressive cast, including Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy (his third Nolan flick), Joseph Gordon-Levitt and some guy called Leonardo DiCaprio.

The sci-fi thriller, which takes place within the architecture of the mind, is set for release next July. Can’t wait.

"Architecture Of The Mind"...
I'm getting SO fuckin' sick of reading that!!! I'm all for keeping things under wraps, and anything Nolan touches is golden, but Christ on a bike, I do not want to be reading that same description for the next year. They better elaborate a bit more, or just come up with a new phrasing! More
