The director of Hollywood blockbusters like Inception, Interstellar, Tenet and The Dark Knight trilogy, Christopher Nolan would love to work on adapting his films into video games but there's a catch.

You were probably busy with Cyberpunk 2077 on the night of The Game Awards show so you missed the appearance of Christopher Nolan, the director of many great films such as Dunkirk, Inception, Memento, the Dark Knight trilogy and the latest one named Tenet. 

Nolan has expressed his interest in the video games industry on several occasions and in his latest interview with The Game Awards host Geoff Keighley, he once again said that he is more than interesting in adapting his films into video games, but as expected, it's never that simple.

When asked if he would ever want to adapt one of his films into a video game and which one would it be, Nolan responded with the following:

"We looked at some of them over the years, we went fairly down the road with [Inception video game adaptation] but making films is complicated, it takes a long time, making video games is even more complicated and it takes even longer." 

"You don't wanna just give away a licence, using the brand established by a film, you don't want to just draft off the brand, you want it to be something great. I devoted my time and energy to films but [video game adaptation] is definitely something I'm interested in. It's an amazing world."

It's interesting that an Inception game has been pretty much in development but sadly it got cancelled since we did not hear about the project for over a decade. Hopefully, Christopher Nolan will explore other options in the future, and who knows, we may get to play one of his creations in the upcoming years.
