Who wouldn’t want to make a movie with director Christopher Nolan and Leonardo DiCaprio?  Beyond Katie Holmes, not many.

Variety reports three prominent actors, 2008 Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, “Juno’s” Ellen Page and Cillian Murphy are joining Nolan’s new Sci-Fi thriller “Inception.”

Details on the project are being kept tightly under wraps, but the studio describes the film as only ” a contemporary Sci-Fi actioner set within the architecture of the mind.” 

The Warner Bros. production keeps Nolan in the studio’s fold after last year’s blockbuster “The Dark Knight” and production is expected to begin this summer for a 2010 release.

This isn’t the first time Nolan has worked with Murphy.  The actor portrayed the villainous Scarecrow in both “Batman Begins” and “The Dark Knight.”  Murphy recently completed “Perrier’s Bounty” and “Peacock” which also featured Page.  Page will also be seen later this year in Drew Barrymore’s roller derby comedy “Whip It!”

Cotillard has a busy year with her first Hollywood films, Michael Mann’s “Public Enemies” and Rob Marshall’s “Nine,” set for release in July and December respectively.
