Director Danny Boyle is firming up the cast for his latest project, Trance. We reported a few weeks ago that James McAvoy joined the cast, presumably replacing Michael Fassbender. New information indicates that Michael Fassbender is indeed out of Trance, although he may be replaced by Colin Firth.
It seems Michael Fassbender had a different role than previously thought, and Colin Firth is considered a front runner to replace him as Aiden. Scarlett Johansson is the top contender to portray Elizabeth in Trance as well. The roles haven't been officially offered to Colin Firth or Scarlett Johansson yet. James McAvoy is locked into the project, portraying Simon.
Danny Boyle will direct Trance from his own screenplay. The story centers on an art heist that goes terribly awry. Production will begin after Danny Boyle directs the opening ceremony of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.
