Some potential casting news for Transcendence from Deadline



Paul Bettany Joins Johnny Depp in Wally Pfister’s ‘Transcendence’

EXCLUSIVE: Paul Bettany is in negotiations to star opposite Johnny Depp in Transcendence, the Alcon Entertainment film that marks the directing debut of Wally Pfister, Christopher Nolan’s cinematographer on Inception and many other films. Alcon partners Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson are producing, and Nolan and Emma Thomas are exec producers.
The film was script by Jack Paglen and the plot is being kept under wraps. The film will start production in the spring, and Bettany will play a scientist. Warner Bros is distributing.
Next up for Bettany is Iron Man 3 (he provides the voice of Tony Stark’s computer Jarvis), and he stars in the thriller Blood with Mark Strong. He was last seen in The Avengers and Margin Call. Bettany is repped UTA, Afffirmative Entertainment, and Independent Talent Group.




This sounds good, I loved the chemistry between Johnny and Paul in The Tourist :applause:

Paul Bettany will be perfect for the role (at least the role I think they are most likely talking about - his character will be a very prominent part of the movie). He and Johnny seemed to have gotten on very well during The Tourist and that connection will serve them well here. While I'm not overwhelmingly thrilled about this movie, this is some very good news. Hopefully the script will be up to par as well.

The Hollywood Reporter story says that filming will begin in April "in Los Angeles." I suppose that means in-studio; this seems like the sort of plot that would lend itself to lots of in-studio, rather than location, filming.

But we can always hope that there will be some glimpses of Johnny . . . maybe walking down the street with a coffee cup in hand. :bigwink:

Thanks for the links, Lou Lou. It's nice to have so much news popping up!

DEPP TRANSCENDENCE is OURS, New Mexico Style

Posted by Sindicator on March 2, 2013

In a far out blind item, we were recently hinting at rumblings that the biggest of biggies by way of global superstars, was possibly en route BACK to New Mexico!

Now that reports are rolling into the blogosphere that Johnny Depp’s next feature film is in fact on the rails, rapidly headed toward meeting production dates for a Spring 2014 release date, we ~can tell you – DEPP IS HEADED BACK TO NEW MEXICO!

Transcendence (which I will now learn how to spell) is set to co-star NMFilmer Paul Bettany, who starred in the 2009 New Mexico film Legion. Dark Knight cinematographer Wally Pfister will make his directorial debut with the film, which Collider reports to be about “a scientist whose brain gets uploaded into a supercomputer with the aim of creating the world’s first machine that can think for itself”.

Female leads currently being bandied about include NMFilm star Emily Blunt (Sunshine Cleaning), Rooney Mara, and Rebecca Hall.

Stay tuned…Local casting deets to follow!

:loveshower: OH boy! I love Emily Blunt. But all of them sound great, but I really hope it is Emily. And Paul Bettany is fabulous news also.

So did I; I noticed watching the outtakes they seemed to get on very well.

I hoped they'd make another film together - now they are! :yahoo:

LOS ANGELES, CA, MARCH 5, 2013 – Rebecca Hall is set to star alongside Johnny Depp and Paul Bettany in Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, TRANSCENDENCE, it was announced by Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, co-founders and co-CEOs of Alcon Entertainment, which is financing and producing the project.

Principal photography is set to begin in April in Los Angeles. Warner Bros. will release the film on April 25, 2014 via its output deal with Alcon.

Written by Jack Paglen, the screenplay was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films, whose company principals include Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen and Regency Boies. Polvino, Marter and Cohen will produce along with David Valdes (“Book of Eli”), Johnson and Kosove. Boies will co-produce.
Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Aaron Ryder are serving as executive producers.

Hall is known for such films as “The Town,” “Please Give”, “Frost/Nixon” and Woody Allen’s “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” which earned her a Golden Globe nomination. She also starred in Nolan’s “The Prestige” alongside Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale and Michael Caine. Hall will next be seen in “Iron Man 3” for Marvel/Disney, “Closed Circuit” for Focus Features and “A Promise” directed by Patrice LeConte.

Pfister most recently served as cinematographer on “The Dark Knight Rises,” and on last year’s best picture nominee, “Moneyball.” Other credits include such films as “The Italian Job” and “Laurel Canyon.”
Hall is repped by WME and Julian Belfrage Associates.
