Christopher Nolan starts shooting Inception with DiCaprio


MUMBAI: Principal photography began on 13 July on Warner Bros. Pictures’ Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio, which is being directed by Christopher Nolan.

Filming got underway in England, with future locations spanning three continents. Principal photography will also be accomplished on locations in Paris, Tangiers, Calgary and Los Angeles.

A contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind, Inception stars multiple Oscar nominee Leonardo DiCaprio along with Oscar nominee Ellen Page, Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe, Academy Award winner Marion Cotillard, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, Oscar nominee Tom Berenger and Academy Award winner Michael Caine.

Nolan also wrote the script and is producing the film with his producing partner Emma Thomas, with whom he most recently teamed on the blockbuster The Dark Knight.

The behind-the-scenes creative team includes three-time Oscar-nominated director of photography Wally Pfister; production designer Guy Hendrix Dyas; two-time Oscar-nominated editor Lee Smith and Oscar-nominated costume designer Jeffrey Kurland. The effects teams are headed up by special effects supervisor Chris Corbould and visual effects supervisor Paul Franklin, who both earned Oscar nominations for their work on The Dark Knight. Academy Award winner and multiple Oscar nominee Hans Zimmer is composing the score for the film, following his collaboration with Nolan on The Dark Knight.

Inception will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
