Wally Pfister has spent a big chunk of the last few years working with Christopher Nolan (as his cinematographer), and it seemed like the Batman director’s infamous secrecy had rubbed off on him, as he’s been keeping his cards pretty close to his chest about his directorial debut, Transcendence. All we’ve really known is that it’s about artificial intelligence.
Now Screen Crush has slightly more, although it’s not exactly an extensive synopsis. It says, ‘Will Caster, forefather of A.I., has his consciousness uploaded onto the internet.
‘Once there, is it really Will who is interacting with humanity in order to make things better, or a darker sinister clone bent on the termination of the world as we know it?’
It certainly sounds intriguing.
Johnny Depp plays Caster, with Rebecca Hall as his wife and Paul Bettany as a colleague. Cillian Murphy, Kate Mara, Clifton Collins Jr., Cole Hauser and Morgan Freeman also star. It’ll be in cinemas next April.
