Christopher Nolan Wants To Make An Inception Video Game

The director of The Dark Knight and Memento wants to turn his latest film, the $US750 million grossing Inception, into a video game. Just don't expect it any time soon.

Variety reports that Nolan has said "one thing we are looking at doing is developing a video game based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film." As a universe and gameplay mechanic, an open world Inception game sounds all kinds of right, given the right incubation period.

"That's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long-term, in a couple of years," Nolan adds. "Long-term" sounds much better than trying (and failing) to build a quick cash-in game tied to a theatrical or DVD release, a la Pandemic's failed The Dark Knight adaptation.

Nolan is on deck to direct a third Batman film, due summer of 2012.

    if doen correctly this could be wicked like a modern day goldeneye

    I'm not going to argue with a fantastic director wanting to turn a fantastic movie into a franchise. Long-term sounds good, gives them time to think about the story and mechanics.

    i don't see it happening unless he plans on making an inception 2(which would kinda suck anyway imo)

    by the time they've made it the buzz will have died down and the premise would be hard to pull off in a video game without being really repetitive or just feeling like any other spy game where you just warp from place on the planet to place on the planet since most minds would be rather earth centric

    I find Forge World in Reach and LBP2 to be the equivalent of Inception anyhow, so I'm not sure how excited this makes me :P
