I’ve always enjoyed talking to the great Morgan Freeman but he was especially animated one Saturday afternoon talking about his new movie “Transcendence.” He particularly admired working with Johnny Depp (even though it’s really for one scene – the rest are CGI) and counted the actor as one of the main reasons he took the role of Joseph Tagger, a brilliant computer professor who warns the world about its reliance on technology.
In this interview, we talked about his interest in making the movie and why this science fiction could actually be science fact!

I love Rebecca Hall! Not only is she a memorable actress (“The Prestige,” “Vicky Christina Barcelona,” “The Town”), she is also a very sweet person! In “Transcendence,” she plays Evelyn, the wife of Johnny Depp’s character, who will do anything to bring back her husband to life, even if it’s virtual. She really anchors the movie from start to finish.
In this interview, we talked about her interest in making the movie, her character, and if she’s ready to unplug!

Paul Bettany has always been a reliable character actor and he puts his talent to good use in the new sci-fi thriller “Transcendence.” He stars as Max Waters, the family friend of the couple played by Johnny Depp and Rebecca Hall. He’s a pro-technology who warns about society’s reliance on computers.
In this interview, we talked about his interest in making the movie, his character’s unrequited love for Hall’s Evelyn, and the film’s 1950s paranoia feel.

I’ve always been in awe of Kate Mara. The sibling of Rooney Mara has an unforgettable face and can always steal scenes from her fellow actors in movies such as “127 Hours” and “Transsiberian.” In “Transcendence,” Mara is Bree, an anti-technology extremist who will do anything to stop transcendence.
In this interview, we talked about her interest in making the movie, her character, and is she guilty of relying too much on technology?

Wally Pfister has worked with the great Christopher Nolan as his director of photography in movies like “The Prestige,” “The Dark Knight Rises,” Memento,” and much more -- pretty much in all of Nolan movies. But now, the Oscar-winning cinematographer from “Inception” is branching out and making his debut as a director in “Transcendence” starring Johnny Depp.
The film explores the possibility of sentient computers, able to perceive and feel. In this interview, we talked about his interest in making the movie, research, and his talented cast.
