Following yesterday's news that Paul Bettany has joined Johnny Depp in Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister's directorial debut, Transcendence, comes word that Warner Bros. Pictures has now set a release date of April 25, 2014 for the film. That is just one week before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 hits theaters.

The plot involves a scientist whose brain gets uploaded into a supercomputer with the aim of creating the world’s first machine that can think for itself. Depp will play a scientist named Will who is trying to create artificial intelligence.

The screenplay, written by Jack Paglen, was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films, whose company principals include Marisa Polvino, Kate Cohen and Regency Boies. Polvino, Marter and Cohen will produce along with David Valdes, Johnson and Kosove. Boies will co-produce. Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Aaron Ryder are serving as executive producers.

Principal photography on Transcendence is set to begin in April in Los Angeles.
