The Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan has signed on to direct the science fiction flick Inception for Warner Bros., according to The Hollywood Reporter. Based on Nolan’s own original screenplay, the film will be “a contemporary sci-fi actioner setwithin the architecture of the mind.” Nolan is hoping to have it in theaters by summer 2010, which means that an anxiously awaited followup to The Dark Knight may have to wait a bit. Previously, Nolan directed The Prestige in the three-year interim between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.
