Wally Pfister’s Transcendence – Poster, featurette and set pic



Wally Pfister is Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer, but he is now taking a crack at directing with Transcendence.

The film stars Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall, Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins Jr., Kate Mara, and Paul Bettany.

The Film follows a scientist named Will (Depp) who is murdered by anti-technology terrorists. His wife (Hall) then uploads his brain into a computer and soon enough Will is reborn in the machine and finds the ability to communicate through it, allowing him to continue conducting his research.

Producer producer Dan Mintz said:

Without giving away too much, Transcendence is about that moment when human consciousness and the insanely fast rise of computing power collide. It pulls from the idea of singularity to tell a truly meaningful story that is more ‘science reality’ than science fiction. This is something that is likely to happen in our lifetimes and that makes it a story everyone can get into.

Sounds intriguing.

Transcendence opens on April 18, 2014.
