According to The Hollywood Reporter Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard and Cillian Murphy are in talks to join Leonardo DiCaprio in Christopher Nolan’s Inception. All three are great actors and would be great additions to Nolan’s sci-fi flick. Ellen Page, as we know, is a rising talent following Hard Candy and Juno, Cotillard won Best Actress award at last years Oscar’s and Cillian Murphy is a good friend of Nolan’s, having been in both Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
“Inception” is described as a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within “the architecture of the mind.” In keeping with most things associated with Nolan’s project, the secrecy extends to the character descriptions.
James Franco was in talks to join the project but had to bow out due to a scheduling conflict with Universal’s comedy “Your Highness.” Nolan and the studio are aiming for a summer shoot ahead of a 2010 release
