Johnny Depp Is Set To Star In Wally Pfister's 'Transcendence'

Oscar-winning cinematographer and long time collaborator of Christopher Nolan,  Wally Pfister has cast Johnny Depp in his directorial debut 'Transcendence.'  It was announced by Alcon co-founders and co-CEOs Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove. With principal photography set to begin early next year

Taking a cue from Mr Nolan little is known about  'Transcendence' but Pfister did talk a little about casting Depp, saying: 
 “I'm thrilled, and feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Johnny. He is a creative and intelligent artist whom I feel will bring great depth to the character and the overall narrative."
 Kosove and Johnson also stated:
 “Johnny Depp is one of the most charismatic, talented actors imaginable and we are delighted he is with us on this project.”
