First Look: James McAvoy & Vincent Cassell in Danny Boyle's 'Trance'
Though we haven't gotten a movie from Danny Boyle since 127 Hours in 2010, the director was rather busy coordinating the opening ceremonies of the Olympics this year. Thankfully, for those of us who aren't sports fans, Boyle has also been working on a new film called Trance, which we heard about last May. The story follows a fine-art auctioneer (James McAvoy) who is in league with a gang of thieves (led by Ocean's Twelve star Vincent Cassel) and enlists the assistance of a hypnotherapist (Rosario Dawson) to help him recover a lost painting. Now we have a look at the first photos for this art heist thriller and it looks slick.
Here's the first look photos from Danny Boyle's new film Trance, right from USA Today:
Boyle tells the newspaper that the film isn't exactly as it seems. The filmmaker says, "It takes the idea of a stolen painting and develops into something sleeker and more psychological, with twists and turns." Boyle continues, "I wanted to do an updated noir, give it a contemporary spin in terms of emotion. Noir is usually cold. I wanted it to be more emotionally charged. It's the first time I put a woman at the heart of a movie." John Hodge (who wrote Boyle's adaptation of Trainspotting) wrote Trance, which is reportedly due out on March 27th, 2013 in the UK and likely sometime in the United States later in the spring.
