Christopher Nolan likes to have wise old men in his movies. The Dark Knight films had two of them in the form of Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman. Now the cinematographer of Dark Knight, Wally Pfister has decided he needs a wide old man, so he’s reuniting with Morgan Freeman for Transcendence, according to Variety, joining Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall and Kate Mara.
There aren’t too many details about the movie, although it’s about Will (Johnny Depp), a scientist who uploads his brain into a supercomputer to create artificial intelligence. We’re imaging Freeman will be offering advice and suggesting that perhaps Will’s plan isn’t a great idea.
Principal photography is set to begin in May in Los Angeles, with an April 25th, 2014 release set.
