Deadline are reporting that Paul Bettany (“The Avengers”, “Margin Call”) is set to star alongside Johnny Depp (“Edward Scissorhands”, “Pirates of the Caribbean”) in Alcon Entertainment’s film “Transcendence”.

While we wish we could tell you more about this film, the plot is being very well guarded. Written by Jack Paglen, and directed by first time director Wally Pfister, who was cinematographer on the Christopher Nolan epic, “Inception”, among others.

Filming begins in Spring.

Bettany will be seen next in ‘Iron Man 3’ as the voice of Tony Stark’s Computer, Jarvis.
