Cillian Murphy will join Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall in Transcendence
Cillian Murphy is reported to have nabbed one of the three male leads along side Johnny Depp and Paul Bettany in Wally Pfister’s directorial debut film TRANSCENDENCE. I have a been a big fan of Cillian Murphy since I first saw him in one of my favorite films of 2002, Danny Boyle’s 28 DAYS LATER. Since then he has been a regular in Christopher Nolan films, which continually are among favorite movies in their respective years, including all three Dark Knight films and INCEPTION. Murphy’s casting is no coincidence, seeing that Christopher Nolan is producing the film and director Wally Pfister was the cinematographer in each of those films.
TRANSCENDENCE impressive cast list now includes Cillian Murphy, Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Kate Mara, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman. The sci-fi film follows a scientist who uploads his brain to a computer before he is assassinated. Directed by Oscar winning Cinematographer Wally Pfister, TRANSCENDENCE is slated to release April 25, 2014. (Latino Review)
