As some of you know, I am a huge Leo DiCaprio fan. Although I usually don't like fantasy or sci-fi type films, I can't wait to see Inception this Friday. Leo is such an amazing actor and everything he is in is top notch. Here are some facts about the film. Are you going to see it?
--During production, details of the film's plot were kept secret. Christopher Nolan, who wrote the script, cryptically described it as a contemporary sci-fi action thriller "set within the architecture of the mind."
--Early on, James Franco was in talks with Christopher Nolan for a role. However, due to scheduling conflicts, he was unavailable to join the cast. Joseph Gordon-Levitt was ultimately cast in the role offered to Franco.
--The labyrinthine style of the movie's logo resembles the logo of Christopher Nolan's production company Syncopy.
--Evan Rachel Wood was Christopher Nolan's first choice to play Ariadne, but she turned it down.
--Leonardo DiCaprio was Emma Thomas and Christopher Nolan's only choice for the role of Cobb.
