To say that plot details surrounding Wally Pfister's "Transcendence" have been kept locked up is an understatement. Employing the veil of secrecy utilized by his former boss Christopher Nolan, Pfister has headed into his directorial debut with an all-star cast (Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Kate Mara, Paul Bettany, Morgan Freeman and Cillian Murphy) and story details thus far that haven't gone beyond something vague about a scientist getting his brain uploaded to a computer. Or something. Well, a few more details have found their way to the internet.

Clifton Collins Jr. is one of those reliable character actors who sometimes get taken for granted, but who can pretty much do it all. There's a reason directors like J.J. Abrams ("Star Trek"), Edgar Wright ("Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World"), Jim Sheridan ("Brothers"), Bennett Miller ("Capote"), Terrence Malick (his upcoming music scene movie if he doesn't get cut) and more have called on him, and how he's lining up a role in one of next year's most exciting, mysterious projects.

Maybe this is why he dropped out of Wes Anderson's "Grand Budapest Hotel"? Whatever the reason, at the very least we heartily endorse Johnny Depp's next move, as he has landed a role in a film that will now be leap frogging its way up Most Anticipated lists.

There are certain corners of the internet (or IMDB message boards) -- ones we usually dare not venture to -- where nerds battle it out over which comic book movie this summer was better: Joss Whedon's record breaking "The Avengers" or Christopher Nolan's epic finale "The Dark Knight Rises." And now, Nolan's regular director of photography, Wally Pfister, has thrown another provocative statement into the ring with his own unbridled assessment of the smash-hit Marvel movie.

Much of the lead up to "The Dark Knight Rises" saw everyone involved keep their mouths shut regarding any details at all about the movie. Christopher Nolan's desire for secrecy kept pretty much every aspect of the production on lockdown, but now that the movie is in theaters, the curtain can be opened up a lot more.
