Clifton Collins Jr. has joined the fast growing cast of Transcendence for director Wally Pfister, according to Variety. He’ll star alongside Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, and Cillian Murphy.
Johnny Depp is set to play a scientist named Will, who attempts to create his own form of artificial intelligence by uploading his brain into a super-computer. Unfortunately there aren’t too many other details about the movie, and we don’t know who Clifton Collins Jr.’s will play.
Wally Pfister, who has served as cinematographer on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight trilogy, is making his directorial debut, working from a screenplay by Jack Paglen. The film is due to start shooting in the next couple of months.
