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.
