Hollywood super-trio Wally Pfister, Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale last worked together on The Dark Knight Rises, doing normal things like, you know, raking in over $1 billion at the box office. No biggie.
Pfister’s upcoming movie Transcendence, which is reportedly about a software engineer who develops a program with a dangerous amount of sentience, has already been compared to Inception. Nolan is producing the movie with his wife, Emma Thomas, but it’s been reported that Pfister is looking to cast Batman himself, Christian Bale, in a starring role.
This movie will mark Pfister’s debut as a filmmaker, and its success will most likely govern as to whether or not the cinematographer will get to make another Hollywood picture again.
Still, being so close with Nolan has got to be the defining reason that Pfister has been given the chance to make his own film in the first place.
What do you think? Would it be nice to see this team back together on another project? Does Transcendence sound like it could be a sci-fi classic in the making?
