There's not much info out there on the upcoming big-budget sci-fi film Transcendence
, the directorial debut of frequent Christopher Nolan
collaborator Wally Pfister
. That's not surprising, really, given it's being executive produced by Nolan, who's famously tight-lipped about his own projects. It's like he and Pfister, who's shot every one of Nolan's films since 2000's Memento
, have a bro code of secrecy. But while Nolan or Pfister probably won't give too much away any time soon—except that it's about "a man who creates a computer that develops a malevolent awareness"—some bits of casting news have come out over the past few days that have been enough to make my nerd heart grow three sizes.
