DiCaprio Set for Inception

Leonardo DiCaprio has been cast in Christopher Nolan's next film "Inception". THR reports Leo will play the lead in Nolan's scifi. The film is aiming for a summer shooting start for and a 2010 release date. "Inception" is pitched as: "a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within "the architecture of the mind." The film is being produced by Chris and Emma Thomas for Warner Brothers through the couple's Syncopy Films. This marks the fourth film Nolan has done for WB including his two Batman films and Insomnia.

DiCaprio, who can be next seen in Martin Scorsese"s "Shutter Island," is a very capable actor and under Nolan's vision this project is shaping up to be a nice fill-in while we wait for another Batman. More news to follow as it becomes available....

What say you? Are you excited for anything Nolan brings to the table?
