I get the impression most expect Wally Pfister will share some sort of connection with Christopher Nolan, with whom he served as director of photography on Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. Considering Pfister's first outing as a feature director is a sci-fi film involving a scientist (Johnny Depp) whose brain is uploaded into the supercomputer he created with the intent on having it think for itself, there is a suggestion they, at least, share the same interests. Then again, this could also become something of a Johnny Mneumonic 2 (remember Robert Longo?) and Pfister could be laughed out the building. I think we are all hoping (and expecting) something different, but will expectations be too high? Ironically enough, I asked the same of Inception back in 2010. The film I'm referring to is Transcendence and Depp will co-star alongside Paul Bettany and now Deadline reveals Warner Bros. »
