Johnny Depp Set To Star In Wally Pfister's TRANSCENDENCE
According to THR, Johnny Depp is in negotiations to star in Transcendence, a big-budget sci-fi flick from Wally Pfister - a man who courted a bit of controversy here on CBM with his anti Avengers comments last week. The site say full plot details are under wraps, but that the story deals with "a man who creates a computer that develops a malevolent awareness.", and that Depp will play "a husband who gets sucked into the computer." Sounds very Tron-like.
Depp will play the lead in the TDKR cinematographer's directorial debut - a sci-fi movie which is said to be in the vein of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Inception. There are some big names up for supporting roles too. Click for the details..
There is a fine supporting cast being courted too - apparently Pfister has met with and likes Noomi Rapace as the film's female lead and is considering James McAvoy and Tobey Maguire for the other male lead. Django Unchained's Christoph Waltz also has an offer for a supporting role.
Pfister's longtime collaborator Christopher Nolan will exec-produce the film alongside his wife Emma Thomas. Warner Brothers will distribute, and principal photography is set to begin early next year.
