It pays to be the director who made the second highest grossing film of all-time. Because when you go to make another film — Batman-related or not — you could have your run of the town, should you decide to load up on quality actors. And that’s exactly what appears to be happening with Christopher Nolan’s next film, Inception. As we reported early last month, Leonardo DiCaprio is already set to star in the pic, and as of today he’s getting some co-stars.
The Hollywood Reporter dropped word late last night that Juno star Ellen Page, Batman Begins alum Cillian Murphy and Oscar winner Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose) are all in serious talks to join the production, which should be getting underway this summer. Even though story details are sparse, we do now know that the thriller — which is said to be set within “the architecture of the mind” — will follow the story of a CEO-type fella, played by DiCaprio. Cotillard will play his wife, while Page will play a college grad student who becomes his sidekick. No word yet on what role Murphy might take on.
But lets face facts here — Marion Cotillard is gorgeous. That’s the news.
