Danny Boyle’s ‘Trance’ sets U.K. bow

Director reunites with 'Slumdog' producer Christian Colson

LONDON

Danny Boyle’s “Trance” will bow in the U.K. on March 27, it was announced Thursday by Pathe and 20th Century Fox.

The psychological thriller, which stars James McAvoy, Vincent Cassel and Rosario Dawson, has yet to set a North American release.

Trance” is Boyle’s first film since 2010’s “127 Hours”; he spent the last two years creating the opening ceremony for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Christian Colson, who worked with Boyle on “Slumdog Millionaire” and “127 Hours,” will produce. “Slumdog” won eight Oscars in 2008, including directing for Boyle and picture for Colson.

“Trance” follows a fine art auctioneer, mixed up with a gang of criminals, who joins forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting.

The film reunites Boyle with scribe John Hodge for the first time since 2000’s “The Beach.” Hodge scripted Boyle’s first four features, including “Trainspotting.”

“After a mad summer with London 2012 it’s great to get back to the day job; treachery and intrigue on the screen rather than behind-the-scenes,” said Boyle. “I wanted to do something different, mix things up a bit, and I think ‘Trance’ does that.”

The film is a Cloud Eight and Decibel Films production for Pathe, Fox Searchlight and Film4.
