We’ve found out that Christopher Nolan’s Inception jumps into production this month, and with that news, Lisa Wilton of the Calgary Sun managed to find out a bit more. She is reporting that Inception has a monstrous budget of $200-million! The psychological sci-fi thriller starring Leonardo DiCaprio will be filming in six different countries; Canada being one of them. According to the Sun report, “[Nolan] has already been to Calgary twice to look at possible locations. [He] scouted nearby foothills and mountainous areas by helicopter and is said to have chosen Fortress Mountain as the main Alberta location.
“The production will make its way to Alberta, Canada in November. Other filming locations will Los Angeles, London, Tokyo, Paris, and in Tangiers, Morocco. Filming on the big-budget movie is said to last until December. Christopher Nolan’s follow-up to the record-breaking The Dark Knight is scheduled to hit theaters July 16, 2010.
