Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard (La Môme), Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins) and Ellen Page (X-Men: The Last Stand) may join the cast of Inception, which Christopher Nolan wrote and will direct as his next film, Variety reported. Leonardo DiCaprio has already been set to star.

The film is Nolan's first with Cotillard and Page, but he is reteaming with Murphy, who played the villain Scarecrow in Batman Begins.

The subject matter has been kept under tight wraps, but the studio describes the film as a contemporary sci-fi action film set within the architecture of the mind.

Production begins this summer with an intended 2010 release.
