It was /danny-boyle-takes-trance/reported on Wednesday that Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle will be returning to form with the new heist thriller Trance, set in the high stakes world of Art. Michael Fassbender is now the first actor to become attached to the project.

Danny Boyle and his 127 Hours producing partner Christian Colson are currently in talks with Fox Searchlight and Pathe for distribution rights. Boyle hopes to have the film in theaters by 2013.

Trance will be shot in London this September, a production he is squeezing in before directing the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremonies, which will take place in the same location.
