Does Danny Boyle have the taste for monsters again? The director re-imagined the zombie genre with his inventive "28 Days Later..." and his ambitious stage version of "Frankenstein" (with a score by Underworld and leads Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller alternating the roles of Dr. Frankenstein and his creation) already in previews in the U.K. but his next movie project may find him mixing it up with the supernatural once again.

When we first saw Danny Boyle’s survival tale “127 Hours” at TIFF, we called it “Lean, efficient, despairing, thrilling and ultimately life affirming” as well as one of the best films of the year. By now you know the film is the true story of Aron Ralston (James Franco) who was stuck in a Utah canyon for days after his arm became trapped under a boulder. Little did we know at the time that the film’s leanness was partially the result of a major trim to the third act of the film. The film’s writer Simon Beaufoy recently spoke with the NYTimes about this last minute alteration. “We had a much more resolved ending, so they [the audience] had an emotional connection. There’s a long scene with his mother in the hospital, there’s a long scene with the ex-girlfriend where she told him a few hard truths, there was a scene at his sister’s wedding, which he referenced in the movie. So we had this very unusual movie, and we resolved it in this very Hollywood way.”
