Johnny Depp’s Transcendence wasn’t exactly a critical darling, nor was it a commercial success, but he’ll have another shot at the big-time in less than a year, when Mortdecai hits theaters.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the thriller has just received a release date: Feb. 6, 2015. The Lionsgate film stars Depp as Charlie Mortdecai, an art dealer on the run from terrorists and law enforcement officials alike. His mission: to track down and secure a stolen painting that supposedly contains clues to the location of a missing, legendary treasure.
In addition to Depp, Mortdecai features an all-star cast that includes Ewan McGregor, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Goldblum, Aubrey Plaza and Olivia Munn. Depp’s Transcendence co-star, Paul Bettany, is also in the film.
