The director of The Dark Knight and Memento wants to turn his latest film, the $750 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.

I respect Nolan the most out of all film makers. I know he is a smart person but one thing is, he should leave his films the way it is, no sequels and no tie-ins. This way there is lots of mystery left out.

For example the Saw series, I only seen the first Saw and leaving it at that movie, that ending... I am stunned at how great it is. Now there is like 6 movies, and since I never seen them, I assume that they reveal lots more details with each movie, leaving no mystery, no intrigue. For this reason I refuse to watch the rest of the series because I don't want to ruin my perception of Saw.
