News just broke out of Variety that Leonardo DiCaprio will star in Chris Nolan’s follow-up to The Dark Knight the sci-fi thriller Inception.

Nolan wrote and will direct the film which will begin shooting this year for a July 16, 2010 release.

There has been no formal plot revealed outside of saying the film is a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.

I don’t know about you, but the addition of DiCaprio makes this film a lot more interesting to me.
