Morgan Freeman Finds ‘Transcendence’ With Johnny Depp

Had previously worked with Wall Pfister on "Batman" series

Morgan Freeman looks ready to reteam with his “Batman” collaborators — the actor is in final negotiations to join the cast of first-time helmer Wally Pfister’s “Transcendence,” exec produced by  Christopher Nolan.

Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany and Rebecca Hall also star.

Pic will be financed and produced by Alcon Entertainment’s Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove. Warner Bros. will distribute.

Written by Jack Paglen, the screenplay was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films, whose principals include Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen and Regency Boies. Polvino, Marter and Cohen will produce along with David Valdes (“Book of Eli”), Johnson and Kosove. Boies will co-produce.

Plot details are being kept under wraps. Emma Thomas and Aaron Ryder will join Nolan as executive producers.

Freeman played Lucius Fox in Nolan’s “Batman” franchise, which also had Pfister as cinematographer.

Freeman is repped by CAA and can be seen next in Universal’s “Oblivion.”
