TRANSCENDENCE begins shooting in Los Angeles; filming will shift to New Mexico soon

Principal photography for Wally Pfister’s directorial debut, Transcendence, got underway at Sunset Gower Studios in Los Angeles today. Transcendence stars Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara, and Cillian Murphy. Written by Jack Paglen, Transcendence is being financed and produced by Alcon Entertainment’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove, with Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Aaron Ryder as executive producers.

Shooting will soon move to New Mexico, where filming is expected to continue in and around Albuquerque until the end of July. New Mexico Film Office director Nick Maniatis announced that Transcendence will employ approximately 250 New Mexico crew members and over 2400 New Mexico background and principal talent. That should provide a nice boost to the local economy!
