But You're Not Going To See It Until 2013Danny Boyle has been on a hot streak. His last two films -- "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours" -- played to critical acclaim and Oscar recognition, and his recent work on the stage with his haunting, Underworld-powered, role switching "Frankenstein" has been earning equally strong notices across the board. He's already looking ahead to 2012 where he and Stephen Daldry will be the creative bosses of the 2012 Olympics in London. But before he gets to that, he's going to crank out another film.

But You're Not Going To See It Until 2013



Danny Boyle has been on a hot streak. His last two films -- "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours" -- played to critical acclaim and Oscar recognition, and his recent work on the stage with his haunting, Underworld-powered, role switching "Frankenstein" has been earning equally strong notices across the board. He's already looking ahead to 2012 where he and Stephen Daldry will be the creative bosses of the 2012 Olympics in London. But before he gets to that, he's going to crank out another film.

Deadline reveals that Boyle will helm "Trance," a project that is definitely new and as such, details are a bit scarce. There's no word yet on who penned it, but the film is described as "an art heist gone wrong" with tonal similarities to early Boyle films "Shallow Grave" and "Trainspotting," and we're likely to hear more about this one soon.

Boyle is already talking to talent on both sides of the ocean for roles in the film for a September shoot. And then we'll wait as he will transition over to his Olympic duties before returning to the film a year later around August 2012 to edit and prep it for a 2013 release. So it's a long wait, but it's better that he get it in the can before the Olympics then after, otherwise the gap between films would be even longer.

More details are sure to come, but Boyle doing a heist-themed flick? Sign us up.
