Johnny Depp's representatives confirmed yesterday that Transcendence would be his next film. The feature was written by Jack Paglen and marks the directorial debut of Wally Pfister, cinematographer on The Dark Knight. All that's currently known about the plot is that it's a present-day science fiction story, though you can now add Paul Bettany to the cast. Bettany's career hasn't exactly been on the rise as of late as he is known more now as the voice of "Jarvis", Tony Stark's computer butler in the Iron Man films, a "role" of which he'll be reprising in Iron Man 3. Otherwise, a role in Margin Call in 2011 and then all the way back to Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World mark the best work he's delivered in the last ten years. Unfortunately it's just been a matter of bad roles and hopefully this one will set him back on the right track. »
