Christian Bale may join Johnny Depp in Transcendence
Director Wally Pfister’s upcoming film TRANSCENDENCE is quickly starting to become one of those movies we all need to keep an eye on. Earlier this week we reported that Johnny Depp was set to star as the lead, and today we’re learning that Pfister wants Christian Bale on board as well. This may seem like a long shot for a green director like Pfister, but keep in mind that Pfister was a cinematographer on the Batman trilogy, oh and Christopher Nolan is on board to produce TRANSCENDENCE as well. This is still a piece of news that could fall to the wayside, because let’s face it – everyone wants Christian Bale in their movies these days. However, Pfister has some pull and with the help of Christopher Nolan he just might be able to talk the brooding Brit (that’s Christian Bale) into joining the film.
Christian Bale has a handful of upcoming projects that include: OUT OF THE FURNACE, KNIGHT OF CUPS, an untitled Terrence Malick project as well as an untitled David O. Russell project and THE CREED OF VIOLENCE. If you just can’t wait for those films, you can pick up THE DARK KNIGHT RISES when it hits Blu-ray on December 4th, 2012. (LA Times)
