We're excited that regular Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister is picking up the director's mantle for his debut film, Transcendence. And now we get a very tiny look at what is going on in Pfister's movie world.
Transcendence stars Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Cillian Murphy, Paul Bettany, and Kate Mara and features a conflict between an anti-technology group and a trio of scientists working on a self-aware computer. Depp plays Max, one of the scientists, who is married to fellow researcher Evelyn (Hall). After Max is assassinated by anti-technology terrorists, Evelyn uploads his brain into a prototype supercomputer. The photo above, via Deadline, shows our leads on set.
The brief featurette below, which was created for Chinese audiences, also gives us a few flashes of Pfister's pre-production mapping:
There's also a Chinese teaser poster, although it doesn't reveal much:
Hopefully we'll be seeing more from Pfister's production soon.
