Cinematographer Wally Pfister continues to add cast members to his directorial debut Transcendence (which is totally different than Interstellar, directed by Pfister’s frequent collaborator Christopher Nolan). The latest actor to join the fray, according to Variety, is Clifton Collins Jr., whose credits include Parker, The FP and Bennett Miller’s Oscar-winning Capote.

Collins joins an impressive ensemble. Pfister already hired Johnny Depp for the film’s leading role. He’ll be surrounded by Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany and Cillian Murphy. Many worked with Pfister and Nolan on the Batman trilogy, so it makes a bit of sense as to why the director would lure familiar faces to his directorial debut.

We just don’t know exactly what they’ll be doing. Pfister’s taking a page out of Nolan’s playbook by keeping most details about his movie under tight wraps. We basically understand that Depp will be playing a tech pioneer trying to merge his consciousness with a supercomputer. Bettany will be playing a rival scientist, with Hall and Mara as the female leads. But Nolan probably inspired Pfister to twist and bend the audience’s minds with movies like Inception and The Prestige, so we can probably anticipate some convoluted narrative that’s going to look as fantastic as Pfister’s past work.

As for Collins, he’s on a bit of a roll. He’s rumored to be part of the next Terrence Malick film – though no one know what ends up in a Malick movie until the film actually hits the screen. And Collins also will play Tendo Choi in Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim, opening in theaters on July 12.
