Is Chris Nolan considering making an Inception video game?

09.21.2010by:

FYI - Christopher Nolan's little film INCEPTION has made just under a bajillion dollars worldwide. Actually, it's real worldwide take is a ridiculously impressive $753 million now as the film is about to be released in Italy, its last major international territory.

And while that's been happening, Nolan also discussed the possibility of creating a video game set in the world of what's arguably this year's most significant film. Here's Variety with the quote from a press conference in Rome:

"We are looking at doing is developing a videogame based on the world of the film, which has all kinds of ideas that you can't fit into a feature film. That's something we've been talking about and are looking at doing long term, in a couple of years."

While games based on movie properties are not particularly known for their greatness (with some notable exceptions such as the recent Scott Pilgrim game, The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, and Goldeneye), it would seem INCEPTION would be perfect fodder for a video game, with its exotic locales, intense gunplay, droves and droves of "projections" to make dead, and of course, mind-bending physics. I'd definitely be down for some of that, but what about you?

Priorities, priorities....

First off, I am a huge gamer. My XBox 360 is going to be best man at my wedding. However, as much as a game based on 'Inception' might be cool...it would require at least some of Nolan's time to do it justice. I'd far rather see him focus on the next Batman movie and the Superman franchise revamp!

I agree with the earlier post of letting the mechanics be similar to something along the lines of Assassin's Creed. However, I'd say get Naughty Dog to put the project together and you'd have something truly special on your hands.

Two things to make this work.

Videogame companies have the tendency to screw things up. BUT, if Sony / Santa Monica (the guys behind such awesomeness as the God Of War trilogy and Uncharted 1 & 2) backed this baby up, and gave it a world-scale that rivaled the Grand Theft Auto games. If those two ingredients are in the mix, then I think I'll be first in line to pick this piece up when it hits stores.

most games based on movies suck because they are rushed to coincide somewhat with the movie's release and because the developers are hardly ever in contact with the filmmakers. the fact that the movie is already released and that it's actually chris nolan talking about this makes me hopeful.

$10 says youre not gonna be playing as Cobb, Eames, or anyone but yourself. your on-screen avatar will look just like you, and playing the game itself is going into a level 1 dream.

ooooooooooooh inception!

Although an Inception gam would be sweet, I'd much rather have a Vanilla Sky video game first!

If this is indeed made, I hope it's made with the same game play mechanics like Assassin's Creed.

For the extra tidbit, Inception wasn't the only one. How to Train Your Dragon was also on the top 10 for 10 weeks.

EdIT: Nevermind. You said "summer." :)

Inception was absolute garbage and nothing more than a dumb action movie or video game to begin with. So, the fact that this premise fits a video game so well should make you realize this.

He didn't see it. He's the type of person who HAS to go against the grain merely on principal. He's an elitist. It's as simple as that. If more than two or three people like it and it's successful, count him out.

ElderPredator, yes, I saw the movie. Balboa6, that was an amusing analysis but I don't fit into that category. I've liked a lot of movies that have been well received both critically and publically. TAE K, not a troll, just expressing my opinion. Rubberboy, your comment was very harsh. So, you wish someone was dead just for having a different opinion then you about a movie? I think that right there shows who the small minded hateful little man is. I love this site so I have no intention

I think that right there shows who the small minded hateful little man is. I love this site so I have no intention of leaving. And my posts don't merely consist of me hating on movies. I give plenty of green comments when they're deserved. I like how people are trying to think of possible reasons why I didn't like Inception. Am I an elitist? Have I not seen the movie? Do I have bad taste? Do I just hate everything? How about this reason- I have good taste in movies and in my opinion Inception was a very bad movie. A lot of people liked it but I'm definitely going to voice my opinion on a movie site about giving opinions.

Mark, of course I don't wish you were dead (just your opinion) I save those wishes for my worst enemies. I don't even know you. Hell, for all I know, you may be a top bloke...... Who just happens to have a differing opinion
 ( one that differs from the rest of the world). Great comeback on the small minded thing eh.  I know when I have been shot down by someone and your aim was justified. I truely am sorry you didn't like that film. I honestly can't see what you hated about it for it was, a

I truely am sorry you didn't like that film. I honestly can't see what you hated about it for it was, a damn good film. There are other films I thought were better but this was in MY opinion almost perfect. The reason for being a tad harsh was that everytime I see an Inception post I read it and find you there blowing your hate trumpet to the sound of 50 odd thumbs down and I snapped and my fingers attacked the keyboard without thinking so for that I am sorry if my words upset you in any way. 
 Maybe if you gave the film another shot and looked at it from a different perspective and enjoyed it for what it is, a piece of entertainment instead of over analyzing and trying to think of reasons why you hated said movie maybe then you might enjoy it. If not then it's no biggie... Coz I and everyone else on the planet enjoyed it and at the end of the day that's all that counts.
P.s. No hard feelings?

Okay...

If Chris Nolan announced that he was making a PSA about the epidemic of holes getting popped in condoms, it would be my most anticipated viewing experience.

The movie already plays out like a video game, so why not?

Hopefully Nolan will write the story for this.

This would make for a fantastic video game. Concept alone. Be'd amazing if the cast recorded their voices for it.
