Chris Nolan Plans Sci-Fi “Inception”

Between “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight”, director Christopher Nolan made “The Prestige” for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Now in what looks likely to be between “The Dark Knight” and his third Batman film, he’ll be doing it again with plans to shoot the sci-fi action film “Inception” this Summer for release mid-2010 says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story, an original idea from Nolan which he is scripting, is described only as a “contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind”

Nolan will produce with Emma Thomas. The move pushes back potential filming on a third Batman film, but it seems likely that it will follow the pattern of the franchise so far with the next entry likely to film in 2010 for release Summer 2011.
