Christopher Nolan on ‘Inception 2’: “You Never Know”
If you’re thinking that Inception 2 makes sense..you’re not the only one. In fact, you’re in good company because director Christopher Nolan says a follow-up to the 2010 smash hit, Inception, has “potential.”
Nolan, who also wrote the screenplay for the Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page mind-bender, says that he has always “liked the potential of the [Inception] world” for a part two.
“It’s an infinite, or perhaps I should say an infinitesimal world that fascinates me,” says The Dark Knight director. “At the moment, we’re exploring a video game, which is something I’ve been very interested in doing for a number of years. This lends itself nicely to that.”
The filmmaker explained that, although Inception was designed as a one-off film, he doesn’t know where his “creative interests” will take him in the future.
Even though Inception was crafted without a sequel in mind, he won’t rule out Inception 2.
“As far as sequels go, I think of Inception as one film, but that’s how I approach all my films,” said Nolan.
“When I was making Batman Begins, I certainly didn’t have any thoughts of doing a second Batman film, let alone a third.
Nolan goes on: “You never quite know where your creative interests are going to take you, but when I was making Inception I viewed it as a stand-alone movie.”
