After an incredibly exciting year of praise and tremendous box office success for The Dark Knight, director Christopher Nolan is ready to start all over again with a new, non-Batman-related project. And yet again, he's getting a big-name A-lister to work with. Leonardo DiCaprio is signing on to star in Nolan's Inception, which "is described as a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within 'the architecture of the mind.'" The movie is set to release relatively soon, in the Summer of 2010.
Nolan wrote the script for Inception himself (just as he wrote the screenplays for many of his other films, including Memento, The Prestige, and The Dark Knight), and it'll be interesting to see what will come from a collaboration with DiCaprio. This does, however, push back any work on another Batman movie. Are you anxious for Nolan to continue with the Batman franchise? Or do you think there should be a bit of breathing room between The Dark Knight and the next installment?
