NEWS: Inception Plot Leaks?

One of the most well kept secrets in Hollywood recently has been the plot and storyline of the upcoming Christopher Nolan film, Inception. There have been leaked call sheets, April Fools Jokes, and everything between, all attempting to shine a bit of light on this script, which has been under the most impenetrable lock and key. However, via InContention, some plot details are allegedly leaking out. All with it's fair share of skepticism as well.

Here's the scoop:

“Inception” takes place in a world where we have developed a means by which we can enter people’s dreams. Leonardo DiCaprio’s character Jacob Hastley has been described as a “CEO type,” but he is also something of a criminal. He dives into people’s dreams to extract information.

Ellen Page will play Ariadne, a young college student studying in Paris who is a part of Jacob’s team (along with Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s Arthur and Tom Hardy’s Eames). Jacob’s team actually “creates” the dreams and Ariadne is an “architect” of the them. She engineers them.

When Jacob’s team enters the dreams, it is not via a machine such as “The Matrix” or “The Cell,” I’m told. It is via injection, and the technology can easily be transported in a suitcase. In one scene (featured briefly in the trailer, I believe), the team actually enters a person’s dream while on an airplane.

Cillian Murphy stars as Fischer, a business-type who is soon to become the head of a company. Jacob’s team is attempting to insert an idea into Fischer’s mind to compel him to separate the company into two smaller companies. The reasoning for this is unclear on my end.


While this is all great and wonderful, some have brought up quite a few holes. Here's one that The Playlist has pointed out:

But wait, Jacob Hastley? Sure that's the name listed on "Inception's" IMDB page but from what we gather it simply stems from an April Fool's Day joke courtesy of Script Shadow, so holes start to surface already. Plot wise though, it's any one's guess if they're on the money but, as they continue to write, it does sound potentially feasible. Many of the other characters' names mentioned in the report correctly stem from a call sheet leak though word has it they are the surnames, not first names of the characters.

So holes in this story already are starting. That said, there is no sure fire scoops here, so any one's guess is as good as the next person's.

If anything is for certain, that story sure sounds insanely interesting, and when more information gets leaked online, as I am sure it will very soon, check back here.

Go see something good!
