Earlier this year, in an interview with The Daily Record, James McAvoy hinted at a tantalizing potential project on the horizon saying, "I'm looking at a part soon, like the second half of this year, that is quite extreme I mean, quite full on mental." While the actor is currently shooting the crime drama "Welcome to the Punch," the premise of that film -- about a London detective whose old nemesis, an armed robber, reappears after five years away -- doesn't sound "quite extreme" or "full on mental." However, one project that has been floating with his name attached is an adaptation of Irvine Welsh's "Filth" and it now seems the long-gestating project is coming together.

Project Is Payoff To Franco's 'General Hospital' RoleJames Franco's had a pretty good 2010, but his 2011 is likely to be even better. The polymath will kick things off by not only co-hosting the Academy Awards with Anne Hathaway, but also with a near certain-nomination at the awards for his stunning performance in Danny Boyle's "127 Hours." April will then see him topline the fantasy comedy "Your Highness," and the summer will see him take on his first full-flung blockbuster lead in 20th Century Fox's "Rise of the Apes."
