Written by Christopher Nolan
A thief, who steals corporate secrets through the use of dream-sharing technology, is given the inverse task of planting an idea into the mind of a CEO.
Why It’s Innovative: If there was an answer to the question of “What’s Next?” in the science fiction genre after The Matrix, this script is likely the answer circa 2010. Nolan blended regular science fiction, action, and espionage tropes into the truly innovative concept of dream espionage. This proves that you can inject original and unique concepts into big-budget studio fare.
