Leonardo DiCaprio is in final negotiations to star in Christopher Nolan’s followup to The Dark Knight, the sci-fi film Inception, Variety reports. Based on Nolan’s own original screenplay, Inception will be “a contemporary sci-fi actioner setwithin the architecture of the mind.” Shooting is due to start this year, and Warner Bros. is hoping to have the movie in theaters by summer 2010.
