The Dark Knight Rises’ cinematographer, Wally Pfister, will soon make his directorial debut. And he just might cast Batman.
Christian Bale is rumored for a role in Pfister’s sci-fi thriller Transcendence, The Los Angeles Times reported Friday. The Oscar winner is “[in the director’s] sights,” said The Times.
If cast, Bale may join Johnny Depp in the top-secret production, which centers on a man who creates a computer that develops a malevolent awareness. Bale and Depp previously co-starred in director Michael Mann’s gangster picture, Public Enemies.
Since Memento, Pfister has shot every one of director Christopher Nolan’s films. The cinematographer won the Academy Award for 2010’s Inception.
