Casting news–Paul Bettany to join Johnny Depp in TRANSCENDENCE

Yesterday we learned that Johnny Depp’s next film role will be in Wally Pfister’s Transcendence, and that principal photography is scheduled to begin in April. Now Deadline is reporting that Paul Bettany will be joining Johnny in Transcendence; although plot details are being kept under wraps, the scuttlebutt is that Bettany will be playing a scientist. The two actors previously worked together in The Tourist.
