Wally Pfister's directorial debut, TRANSCENDENCE, is casting like nobody's business. The latest to join? Clifton Collins Jr., best known for his turns in STAR TREK, CRANK: HIGH VOLTAGE and CAPOTE.
Collins Jr. joins a badass cast that includes Johnny Depp, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, Kate Mara and Rebecca Hall.
As is the case with most everyone else in the ensemble, Collins' role is a mystery.
In TRANSCENDENCE, three scientists - Max and husband and wife team Will and Evelyn - have been developing a programming code for the world’s first fully self-aware computer... [When] a group of anti-technology terrorists assassinate Will, Evelyn uploads his brain into a prototype supercomputer.
Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas executive produce; Warner Bros. will distribute on April 25, 2014.
