After years of getting badgered about it at every press junket he's ever attended, Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle ("Slumdog Millionaire") may finally be ready to dive back into the worst toilet in Scotland for "Trainspotting 2."
Doing press for his upcoming James McAvoy heist thriller "Trance," Boyle responded to the perennial question from The Playlist with renewed optimism for a 2016 (20th anniversary) release, which is more solid than when he last spoke of it in 2010. Get More »
Imogen Poots is about to get a little dirty. A lot dirty, actually.
The "Fright Night" beauty is headed for the ugly underbelly of humanity as she joins the ragtag cast of "Filth," according to The Playlist.
"Filth" is based on the novel of the same name by Irvine Welsh, and the story certainly holds true to its brazen title. The man who brought us "Trainspotting" paints another portrait of lost souls and hopeless addicts with the story of Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), a sex- and drug-addled Scottish police officer whose investigation of a murder keeps getting sidetracked by his own depraved shenanigans. Watching over him (sort of ) is his partner (sort of), Ray Lennox (Jamie Bell), and his boss, Bob Toal. Get More »
James McAvoy and Jamie Bell are preparing for extreme depravity as they take on the lead roles in the adaptation of Irvine Welsh's underground novel, "Filth," according to The Playlist.
"Filth" follows the misadventures of Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a sex-obsessed, drug-addicted and bigoted Scottish police officer whose latest murder investigation is continually sidetracked by his own bizarre and subversive shenanigans.
Robertson is (somewhat) watched over by his sidekick of sorts, Ray Lennox (Bell), and his boss, Bob Toal (Alan Cumming).
Sounds like a tale from the man who brought us "Trainspotting," for sure! Get More »
