127 Hours director Danny Boyle is set to direct his next film project called Trance. According to Deadline it tells the story of an "art heist gone wrong, and it's got the dark, sexy, hard-edged tone of Boyle films like Shallow Grave and Trainspotting." I think it's great Boyle it going to back to that kind of film tone, Transpotting is a favorite film of mine, and I've been wanting to see him do something with that kind of hard-edged tone again.
Boyle will produce the film alongside Christian Colson who also worked with him on 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire. They in discussions with Fox Searchlight and Pathe for funding the movie and worldwide distribution. Boyle has a great relationship with Fox Searchlight so I don't see why this would work out.
Boyle will shoot trance before he begins work on he takes on the opening ceremonies of next summer's Olympics Games in London. Here's how Deadline describes he will make both projects work, "The film will be shot in September--Boyle and Colson have begun talking up British and U.S. talent--and after the film's shooting is completed, Boyle will put it on a shelf. He'll devote himself exclusively to the Olympics beginning next January. Next August, he'll return to the film, and cut it with the anticipation that Trance will be ready for theatrical distribution in March, 2013."
Boyle is an awesome director, and this sounds like it could be a great movie. Too bad we will have to wait until 2013 to see it.
