Inception: Chris Nolan's Film Starring DiCaprio and Cottilard

April 1, 2009-Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page will join the cast of “Inception,” which Christopher Nolan wrote and will direct. Leonardo DiCaprio has already been set to star.

Warner bought the spec script before other studios read it, wishing to be in business with the filmmaker after smash hit “The Dark Knight.” Production begins this summer for 2010 release.

The studio described the film as a contempo sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind. Nolan will produce with wife Emma Thomas.

The film is Nolan's first with Cotillard and Page, but he is reteaming with Murphy, who played the villain Scarecrow in “Batman Begins,” and had a a cameo in “The Dark Knight.” Murphy just completed “Peacock” and “Perrier's Bounty.”

Cotillard will next be seen in Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies” and Rob Marshall’s musical “Nine.” Page teamed with Murphy in “Peacock” and starred in Drew Barrymore’s “Whip It!”
