Even though most of us are busy wishing Christopher Nolan would just hurry up and get to work on Batman 3 already, you've got to admit his next movie Inception is shaping up to be pretty good. Just look at the cast the Dark Knight writer/director is currently assembling...
Leonardo DiCaprio has already been set to star as what's being described as a "CEO-type" in the sci-fi action film (details about the plot are still murky at best), and now we're hearing that Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, and Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard will be joining him.
Cotillard, who snagged the Best Actress award away from Ellen in 2007 and shows up as Johnny Depp's girlfriend in the hotly-anticipated Public Enemies, will play Leo's wife. Meanwhile, Page is rumored to be "a young college grad student and DiCaprio's sidekick" and Cillian Murphy's presumably playing the film's villain because, well, the dude's creepy as f--k.
Otherwise, the description we have of the plot still makes absolutely no sense - it's "set within the architecture of the mind." But with a director like Nolan and a cast this good, honestly, who cares what it's about?
