Inception: Nolan Reinventing Sci-Fi?

PLANET GRIFFIN returns to broadcasting depth to introduce a mystery tucked inside a riddle wrapped inside an enigma--- " A sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind..." As of this post, this is what's widely known of the super secret sci-fi project written, produced, and directed by CHRISTOPHER NOLAN. Simply titled INCEPTION, Warner Bros. is banking on this film hard...

...About $200 million hard.

Starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, and Nolan regulars Cillian Murphy and Sir Michael Caine among a currently growing cast list... Now, not since The MATRIX has any film in recent memory been held under such intense secrecy--- or drawn in more rumors over exactly WHAT this film is. Shooting in 6 countries (including Japan, Morocco, and France), the cryptic phrase of 'Your mind is the scene of the crime' alludes to the current rumor that recently leaked concerning a team (led by DiCaprio) who enters people's minds/dreams (via injection) in order to plant or extract information of corporate sharks. The brief fight scene in the teaser suggests that getting inside seems easier than getting out. Imagine DREAMSCAPE meets MISSION IMPOSSIBLE or Nolan retelling a certain Wachowski Bros. classic...

Warner Bros. has a website currently under construction... Due to Nolan's deliberate slow burn of information, only a spinning top is featured. Conspiracy theorists currently argue that even THIS post is nothing more than misinformation... But you must admit, a corporate hit team that works within the mind is pretty damn intriguing, as well as taking the MATRIX conceptual to another level! Christopher Nolan's track record in Hollywood has been impeccable thus far (from the slow suspenser FOLLOWING, the back to front genius of MEMENTO, the bizarre now-you-see-it-now-you-don't-but-you-did-if-you-paid-attention of THE PRESTIGE, to what has easily been heralded as the greatest comic adaptation of all time, THE DARK KNIGHT), granting Nolan the rarified autonomy to produce and create as he pleases...

With that said,
INCEPTION is quickly gaining the reputation of '... the wildest, sci-fi action mind f**k your mind may not be prepared for...' Coming from the mind of Christopher 'Dark Knight' Nolan, PLANET GRIFFIN cannot WAIT to put this one to the test!!!!

Unfortunately, we have to wait until July of 2010 to see this future blockbuster. Crap!!
