Director Christopher Nolan considers Inception video game

Hit movie could become a hit game

Director Christopher Nolan revealed Inception video game ideas today at a press event for the movie's release in Italy, covered by film industry publication, Variety.

The summer blockbuster starring Leonardo DiCaprio grossed $753 million worldwide, according to Warner Bros Studios. Inception also has the distinction of being the only summer movie to hold a top 10 spot in the American box office for 10 straight weeks. The film hits 600 screens in Italy this Friday.

Nolan said at the press event, "One thing we are looking at doing is developing a video game based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film. That's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long-term, in a couple of years."

It doesn't sound like he speculated on what form an Inception game might take, but Nolan did talk about his fears that the film would be misinterpreted as "puzzle-like." That's probably not something he'd have to worry about in a video game, especially if he's going for mass market appeal.

Right now, the star director is busy on a script for Batman 3.
