Depp's next is "Transcendence" and he will be seen playing Dr. Will Caster, a scientist, in the field of Artificial Intelligence in the sci-fi movie which is Wally Pfister's first directorial venture, said a statement.
Pfister has been the cinematographer of all previous Christopher Nolan movies, including "The Dark Knight" trilogy and "Inception".
In a recent interview with Rolling Stones magazine, the actor who is looking to settle down with fiancé Amber Heard, said: "I'm kicking 50 right up the ass. I can't say that I'd want to be doing this for another 10 years."
When asked about what prompted his thoughts on an early retirement, the actor elaborated, "At a certain point, just take it down to the bare minimum and concentrate on, I guess, living life; really living life. And going somewhere where you don't have to be on the run, or sneak in through the kitchen or the underground labyrinth of the hotel."
The actor, who will be seen with Morgan Freeman, Rebecca Hall and Kate Mara in "Transcendence", is yet to sign any new projects.
