Though it sounds like its release is still a long way off, famed film director Christopher Nolan has confirmed that a game based on his successful movie Inception is in the works.
“I always imagined Inception to be a world where a lot of other stories could take place,” Nolan told Entertainment Weekly. “At the moment, the only direction we’re channelling that is by developing a video game set in the world.”
There was no indication of when the game will be released or who is working on the project – Nolan merely confirmed that a team is in place and that the project “was a longer-term proposition”.
He added that the video games medium is something he’s “always wanted to explore”.
Considering Nolan’s penchant for playing with reality in films like Inception and Memento, and his extremely visceral take on the Batman universe in The Dark Knight, it will be fascinating to see how he turns his hand to gaming.
