Nolan rumour 12/12/12
Okay, folks: this is not a drill. The Singularity is set to hit the silver screen, with Batman director Christopher Nolan signed on to executive produce.

The Wrap reports that in the film, titled Transcendence and based on a story by Jack Paglen, Johnny Depp “will play a scientist whose brain is uploaded into a supercomputer” while trying to create the first ever sentient computer. Nanotechnology and the Singularity are also said to play pivotal roles in the film, which explains the nerd boner you are currently sporting.

Johnny Depp may seem like a strange casting choice, but given his penchant for bizarre roles, we imagine he’ll play a mad scientist quite convincingly. He’ll be playing the main character, Will, who is assassinated by terrorists who are against technology. When his wife uploads his brain, Will begins to respond to her queries through the computer. By hooking his brain-cum-computer up to the Internet, he can continue his scientific research.

The Wrap warns that the script summary it received could be out of date, but honestly as long as the film includes brain supercomputers and Christopher Nolan, we’ll be just fine. Now if we can get Ray Kurzweil as an advisor to this thing, it’s sure to be an instant masterpiece.

    I've heard this scenario being played in a different movie, just can't figure out what it was... though I think it was rather old.

    The movie and Johnny Depp aren't fake. It's going to be Wally Pfister's first movie as director.

    Only Depp is confirmed. MacAvoy, Rapace, Maguire and Waltz have been reportedly "eyed" for the film but nothing is confirmed yet. According to a more trustworthy news source, the female lead for the film has been narrowed down to Rebecca Hall, Rooney Mara and Emily Blunt.

    Johnny Depp has hired a couple of homeless people as extras for Transcendence

    The actor is said to have convinced a casting director for the upcoming sci-fi to hire two people living on the streets after he spotted them in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    ''Johnny always likes to help out the community when on location. While scouting out the area around Albuquerque, he came across these two characters. He was straight on the phone to the casting director", a source told The Sun.

    Synopsis:

    “Will Caster, forefather of A.I., has his consciousness uploaded onto the internet. Once there, is it really Will who is interacting with humanity in order to make things better, or a darker sinister clone bent on the termination of the world as we know it?”

    Synopsis:

    Dr. Will Caster (Johnny Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max Waters (Paul Bettany), both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can…but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power, to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.

    The movie looks stupid beyond belief, but holy shit has Pfister actually improved since Nolan is on longer there to offer direction? There's some beautiful stuff there.

    So Crucify the ego, before it's far too late, to leave behind this place so negative and blind and cynical. And you will come to find that we are all one mind, capable of all that's imagined and all conceivable.

    Oh, Goddammit. I thought Pfister was the DP here as well as the director. Jesus Christ. Why have I been completely wrong on things lately?
