Warner Bros. has announced that Transcendence, the directorial debut of Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister (The Dark Knight Trilogy), is set to open on April 25, 2014.  The film stars Johnny Depp, and yesterday we reported that Paul Bettany had joined the flick.  Plot details are being kept tightly under wraps, but the story is rumored to revolve around a scientist whose brain gets uploaded into a supercomputer with the aim of creating the world’s first machine that can think for itself.  As we all know, nothing bad ever happened from creating machines that are capable of independent thought.

Production is set to begin in April in Los Angeles.  Transcendence currently has no competition on April 25, 2014, but the following weekend belongs to The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
