- ROSARIO DAWSON WILL HAVE YOU IN A TRANCE
The cast of Danny Boyle’s next film, Trance, just keeps getting better and better. The latest names poised to sign on? Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel.
We do know that James McAvoy (Professor X in the X-Men: First Class) will play an employee of an art auction house who acts as the inside man during a heist. The crime goes badly wrong and McAvoy ends up with amnesia about where the loot is being hidden. That leads his much more dangerous accomplice (Cassel) to try to crack the secrets out of him using a hypnotist.
Dawson, meanwhile, has signed up for the main female character, a woman who develops an odd relationship with both of them. Feeling like a return to Boyle’s Shallow Grave/Trainspotting roots, Trance will be shot with a frugal budget, before the footage is shelved as the director will concentrate on his London Olympic opening ceremony duties. Once he is done with that, he’ll pick Trance back up again and start editing in August 2012 ready for a March 2013 release.
