Goron-Levitt Joins Nolan’s “Inception”

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi thriller “Inception” for Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

The contemporary sci-fi actioner is set within “the architecture of the mind” according to notes, though no further plot details have been released.

Gordon-Levitt is taking on the role, an associate of the leading CEO-type character, that James Franco was originally scheduled to play before dropping out due to scheduling issues.

Leonardo DiCaprio stars in the lead role, Marion Cotillard plays his wife, Ellen Page is a grad student and Cillian Murphy also has a role.

Filming kicks off this Summer for a 2010 release. Nolan and Emma Thomas are producing.
