Caine joins Nolans scifi Inception April 28, 2009 Michael Caine rejoins Batman helmer for sci-fi actioner. Michael Caine has confirmed that he will make an appearance in Christopher Nolan’s sci-fi flick Inception. The actor who most recently worked with Nolan on the Batman franchise and The Prestige before that, confirmed he will have a small role in the picture: “I have a little part in it, yes. Just a tiny part,” he told InContention. “Chris and I are very good friends so I’ll do that little part. I think I’ll work about three days. “It’ll be extraordinary, wait until you see this one. I think if I say another word he’s going to kill me!” The film is scheduled for release in July 2010 with Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, Cillian Murphy, Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt among the cast.
