Cillian Murphy has joined the cast of TRANSCENDENCE, which revolves around a scientist who has his brain uploaded into a computer in a cutting edge experiment. That’s all that’s known about the plot, but the casting has been getting more and stellar each week. Cast already boasts Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Kate Mara and Morgan Freeman. Murphy will take one of the male leads, but little else is known about it.
Producing will be Broderick Johnson, Andrew Kosove, Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen, Regency Boies and Annie Marter.
Murphy was last in “The Dark Knight Rises” and will next appear in “Cry/Fly”.
He is repped by CAA.
