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 mid-2012.
