Well, this isn't all that surprising, but if it ain't broke, why fix it. Danny Boyle and electronic music veterans Underworld have never been too far apart. The director has used choice cuts of theirs for the soundtracks to "The Beach" and "Trainspotting," and the musicians soon took on a larger role, co-composing the score to his trippy sci-fi flick "Sunshine" (with John Murphy), and tuning up his "Frankenstein" stage show before being named musical directors of last year's London Olympics, where Boyle delivered a dazzling opening ceremony. And he's rung them up again. Well, half of them.

Rick Smith Trance

Well, this isn't all that surprising, but if it ain't broke, why fix it. Danny Boyle and electronic music veterans Underworld have never been too far apart. The director has used choice cuts of theirs for the soundtracks to "The Beach" and "Trainspotting," and the musicians soon took on a larger role, co-composing the score to his trippy sci-fi flick "Sunshine" (with John Murphy), and tuning up his "Frankenstein" stage show before being named musical directors of last year's London Olympics, where Boyle delivered a dazzling opening ceremony. And he's rung them up again. Well, half of them.

Rick Smith from the group will be scoring Boyle's imminent thriller "Trance." Starring James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel, the film tells the story of an assistant at an auction house (McAvoy) who masterminds a heist and teams up with a gang of thieves led by Cassel, only to suffer a blow to the head and wake up with amnesia. The assistant is then subjected to analysis from a hypnotist as the gang begin to suspect duplicity in their ranks. No word as to why Karl Hyde isn't involved, but hopefully there doesn't mean there's dissension within the ranks.

Slated for a March 27, 2013 release in the U.K., so we presume a trailer is just around the corner. No word yet on when it will land stateside but let's hope the wait isn't too long. [Film Music Reporter]
