EXCLUSIVE: I’ve learned that the lead actress to star opposite Johnny Depp in Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister’s first directing effort Transcendence will be decided on Friday. Emily Blunt’s dates for All You Need Is Kill are still being worked out and that may affect her availability versus Rooney Mara and Rebecca Hall. Filming on the Alcon Entertainment production starts on March 4th. The screenplay is written by newcomer Jack Paglen and was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films. Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are executive producing for their longtime collaborator Pfister. Depp will play a scientist whose brain is uploaded after his death into a supercomputer by female scientist Evelyn.
