'Iron Man 3' star Rebecca Hall joins Johnny Depp's new sci-fi film 'Transcendence'

Rebecca Hall has joined the cast of Transcendence, an upcoming sci-fi film starring Johnny Depp.

Transcendence will be the first film directed by longtime Christopher Nolan collaborator Wally Pfister. Pfister won an Oscar for his cinematography work on 2010's Inception, while his impressive CV also includes credits on Nolan's Batman trilogy and The Prestige.

The film's script was penned by newbie screenwriter Jack Paglen. Depp will play a scientist whose brain is uploaded into a super-computer after his death by a female scientist called Evelyn - the role Hall has now signed on for.

Paul Bettany is also confirmed to appear as a third scientist. Shotting is due to begin next month (April) in Los Angeles and Warner Bros has given the film an April 2014 release date.

In the meantime, Hall and Bettany will both be seen alongside Robert Downey Jr in Iron Man 3, which arrives in cinemas on April 26. Scroll down and click 'play' to watch the trailer.
