Will we finally see one original scenario worth of money or all the money will go to special effects and principal cast members. I also have a feeling it will eventually end up like 100 million of that goes to Johnny Depp, 20 million to special effects and zero to the script.
Sorry for being too honest and let’s start again: Warner Bros. have been developing a Twilight Zone feature film for some time, then Matt Reeves was signed on to direct the project, then Reeves recently ditched this project for the next Planet of the Apes and the astronaut who breaks the light barrier turns out to be ‘three scientists, attempting work on stem cell and advanced computer technology, which will change the fundamentals of human life. Tension comes into play when they are met by protest and resistance.’
Or say it in other words, initial description of the film is being about ‘a man who creates a computer that develops a malevolent awareness. Depp will portray a husband who gets sucked into the computer and it’s safe to say Wally Pfister‘s directorial debut is shaping up to be one of 2013s most notable features.
The film called Transcendence is due to start shooting in February 2013 in Los Angeles and Pfister is making another pass at Jack Paglen‘s script now and is likely to co- star Christian Bale with Noomi Rapace, Tobey Maguire and James McAvoy also mentioned. Executive produced by Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas.
Let’s pray for the Transcendence film described as ‘in the vein of 2001: A Space Odyssey and Inception.’
