There's a new movie coming up from Danny Boyle already? Bring it on! According to Deadline, the SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and 127 HOURS director is going to helm TRANCE, a thriller that will shoot in London this September. Plot is rather sketchy at the moment, but the movie is about an art heist gone wrong and the tone is reminiscent something towards Boyle's earlier movies such as SHALLOW GRAVE and TRAINSPOTTING.
As of now, it wasn't clear whether Boyle would make a movie before directing the opening ceremonies of next summer's Olympic in London. Still, here is how he's going to multi-task his schedules:
The movie will be shot in September -- Boyle and Colson have begun talking up British and U.S. talent -- and after the movie'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 movie, and cut it with the anticipation that TRANCE will be ready for theatrical distribution in March 2013.
TRANCE will be granted a mid-range budget that propelled most of Boyle's previous efforts.
