Rooney Mara up for Transcendence

Rooney Mara is up against Emily Blunt and Rebecca Hall to play the female lead in 'Transcendence'.

The 'Girl with the Dragon Tattoo' actress is one of the favourites to star alongside Johnny Depp in Wally Pfister's first directing effort.

According to Deadline.com, Emily's dates for 'All You Need Is Kill' are still being worked out, which may affect her availability versus Rooney and Rebecca.

Johnny will play a scientist whose brain is uploaded after his death into a supercomputer by female scientist Evelyn, who will be played by one of the three actresses.

Filming starts in March and the screenplay is written by newcomer Jack Paglen and was developed by Annie Marter and Straight Up Films.

Christopher Nolan and Emma Thomas are executive producing for their longtime collaborator Pfister.

Wally recently spoke of his joy about getting Johnny to sign up for the sci-fi movie.

He said: ''I'm thrilled, and feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Johnny. He is a creative and intelligent artist whom I feel will bring great depth to the character and the overall narrative.''
