Morgan Freeman has joined the intriguing (but seemingly random) cast of TRANSCENDENCE, which includes (a hopefully weird makeup free) Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Kate Mara (aka the superior Mara!). It’s been forever since we’ve known about this project and we still don’t know diddly. This reminds me of the time before the rise of the movie blog, when movie trailers were our first and only glimpse before a movie came out. All we know is a scientist has his brain uploaded into a computer in a cutting edge experiment.
Producing will be Broderick Johnson, Andrew Kosove, Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen, Regency Boies and Annie Marter from a script by Jack Paglen.
Freeman is probably best know for “Shawshank Redemption” (aka the movie everyone watches whenever it’s on tv) and the guy who’s voice has narrated so many commercials, documentaries and movies that there are fake Freemans who try to approximate his style. Most recently he’s starred in the very stupid but surprisingly fun “Olympus Has Fallen” and will next be seen in “Oblivion” and “Now You See Me”.
He is repped by CAA.
