Christopher Nolan is definately Hollywood’s golden child right now. With back to back hits like Batman Begins and Dark Knight there seems to be no end to his accolades. So when Nolan announced his next project wouldn’t be Batman we were introduced to Inception.
Now Inception is introduced to Leonardo DiCaprio.
As of right now, we know almost nothing about this film, other than that it is a contemporary sci-fi action movie set in “the architecture of the mind”, whatever that means. The plan is to begin shooting this Summer, with a July 16th 2010 release date.
Leonardo DiCaprio is easily a step in the right direction on ANY movie. Hell, I would watch Hannah Montana if he was involved.
I am fast becoming a Nolanite, just because of his work with Batman, so when I found out he was taking a break from the Cape and Cowl to do a different film I instantly was disappointed that he wasn’t bringing us another Batman. But I think professionally this is a great move for him.
He can write his own ticket in Hollywood and he could tell you he was directing a ballet full of fat people and any studio would say Yes out of pure faith alone. And I guarantee that there will NOT be another Batman without offering it to Nolan 17 times first, so while he is still on top of the world, he can do his own thing. And if it doesn’t work out so great, he can always do another Batman!
When I found out that his own thing was going to be a sci-fi action flick I was already eager to hear more. Now that DiCaprio is on, I just can’t wait to hear more.
