Until earlier this week, we’ve been completely lost in the dark when it comes to details concerning Christopher Nolan’s Inception. While we are still, very much, lost in the dark, we are starting to see the first rays of light transverse the horizon.
Inception has been filming in Paris all this week and we’ve been hit with a tidal wave of photos. One image, in particular, is a shot of a Call Sheet for the cast. Bonus: it lists character names. Ellen Page is Ariadne, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Arthur, Tom Hardy is Eames, Ken Watanabe is Saito, Dileep Rao is Yusef, Cillian Murphy is Fischer, Tom Berenger is Browning. Leo DiCaprio’s name is missing from the list, but we’re assuming that the name Cobb refers to him. The name Cobb is listed in the first cast slot and character slot.

As we had previously announced, Inception is filming in Paris today around the Pont de Bir-Hakeim. We have obtained six photos of the shoot. Leo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, and Marion Cotillard are pictured here, as well as, Christopher Nolan, Wally Pfister, and a few other crew members. Whatever they were filming earlier today, it looked as if there were a several extras involved too.

Update: Excitement was turned up a notch in Paris today as Chris Nolan and his crew filmed an scene involving explosions and flying debris. Ellen Page and Leo DiCaprio were on set for the scene.
Check out our full gallery below. We’ve compiled 223 images for your enjoyment. Note – some of these images could be considered spoilers. Nothing real crazy, though.

On Monday, August 17th, Inception will be filming around the Pont de Bir-Hakeim, a bridge that crosses the Seine RiverÂ in Paris, France. Scenes will likely involve Ellen Page’s character, a graduate student studying in Paris. Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Caine are also likely to be in the shoot, since they were both present for filming that took place at the University College London library that was altered to imitate the Bibliotheque of the Ecole de Architecture in France. We are also suspecting that Joesph Gordon-Levitt will be a part of these scenes too. He’s been tweeting in French.
Once filming in Paris is complete, the global production will move on to Los Angeles in early September and Calgary in November. Â Filming will also take place in Tangier, Morocco sometime before production wraps in December. Posted below are some photographs of the Pont de Bir-Hakeim.
