7 Great Movies Johnny Depp will star in next

Tags: ,

After the  The Lone Ranger flop, Johnny Depp must be itching to erase the movie from his repertoire and move on to something that does better at the box office. He has proven before that he is a brilliant actor, so we have no doubt that he will rise once again to the heights of stardom, success and the level of popularity he is accustomed to. Here’s 7 Great Movies Johnny Depp will star in next:

 

1. Transcendence

  • Starring: Cillian Murphy, Clifton Collins Jr., Cole Hauser, Johnny Depp, Kate Mara, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany and Rebecca Hall
  • Director: Wally Pfister in his directorial début, but it is being produced by Christopher Nolan
  • Release Date: April 18, 2014.

Johnny Depp stars as a dying scientist who uploads his consciousness into a supercomputer. Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister will make his directorial début with a screenplay by Jack Paglen. The sci-fi film is produced by Christopher Nolan.

Dr. Will Caster is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him. However, in their attempt to destroy Will, they inadvertently become the catalyst for him to succeed—to be a participant in his own transcendence. For his wife Evelyn and friend Max, both fellow researchers, the question is not if they can… but if they should. Their worst fears are realized as Will’s thirst for knowledge evolves into a seemingly omnipresent quest for power—to what end is unknown. The only thing that is becoming terrifyingly clear is there may be no way to stop him.
