Christopher Nolan has set up his next project with Warner Brothers, an original sci-fi screenplay he wrote called Inception, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The Dark Knight director hopes to shoot the action film in the summer for a release during summer 2010, the trade paper reported.

Nolan will produce with partner Emma Thomas, who served as a producer on The Dark Knight.

Inception is described as "a contemporary sci-fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind."

This pushes back any potential filming on a new Batman film.
