Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle will be following his survivalist/inspirational film 127 Hours with Trance. This new film will be a more traditional noir, but with a slight twist. I’m eagerly anticipating the next film from the director of such classics like Sunshine, Trainspotting, 28 Days Later and of course Slumdog Millionaire.
The film stars Vincent Cassel, Rosario Dawson and James McAvoy. It should be seeing a release in UK cinemas in March of 2013, with no US date officially announced.
Check out the first few pics above and below:
TRANCE, directed by Oscar®-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire, 127 Hours) and co-written by Oscar®-nominated long term collaborator John Hodge (Shallow Grave, Trainspotting) is a seductive and enigmatic thriller starring James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson.
Fine art auctioneer Simon (McAvoy), in league with a gang led by underworld boss Franck (Cassel), plots the audacious theft of a masterpiece by Goya from a major public auction. When Simon double-crosses the gang during the robbery, Franck retaliates violently and knocks him unconscious.
In the aftermath of the heist, Simon sticks stubbornly – and perhaps shrewdly – to his claim that the violent trauma has left him with no memory of where he stashed the artwork.
Unable to coerce the painting’s location from Simon, Franck and his associates reluctantly join forces with a charismatic hypnotherapist (Dawson) in a bid to get him to talk. But as they journey deeper into Simon’s jumbled psyche the boundaries between reality and hypnotic suggestion begin to blur and the stakes rise faster and far more dangerously than any of the players could have anticipated.
