Christopher Nolan is one of those filmmakers who could make a rut or obsession seem so damned appealing. For many, it's great to branch out and not get rutted, but for Nolan ... it would be quite sweet to have a neverending onslaught of good, wow-worthy Batman films. That's not going to happen, but at least his post-bat project is becoming increasingly more interesting.

On the heels of Leonardo DiCaprio, Variety reports that Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, and Cillian Murphy are joining the Inception. Not much more is being said about the project, but this is what we know thus far: It will be a sci-fi action movie that takes place within "the architecture of the mind," and DiCaprio will play a CEO-type, Cotillard will be married to him, and Page will be a young grad student who is also his sidekick. There's no mention of Murphy's character, so I wonder: Could this all take place within his mind?

It could take place on a napkin for all I care -- Nolan has definitely proven he's got the chops, and this cast should be interesting in the realms of science fiction. But what do you think? Is Inception intriguing you, or do you just wish Batman would answer the bat signal once again?
