Michael Fassbender in Talks to Join Danny Boyle's 'Trance'


Michael Fassbender


Keeping himself employed, Fassbender is in negotiations to star as a gang leader in a remake of the 2003 British movie directed by Joe Ahearne.

Michael Fassbender's new acting job is announced in the weeks leading to "X-Men: First Class" theatrical release. The Irish actor is in talks to star in 2003 British movie remake called "Trance" which has nabbed Danny Boyle as director.

Story centers on an assistant at an auction house who masterminds a heist and teams up with a gang of thieves, but suffers a blow to the head and wakes up with amnesia. He is the only one who knows where the painting's location is and after his continued failure to remember, the gang begins to suspect duplicity on his part and hire a female hypnotist to get into his brain.

Fassbender is expected to fill in the role of the shady leader who partners with the assistant. For Boyle, this is a return to thriller genre after tackling "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours". He previously directed such movies as "The Beach" and "28 Days Later".

Shooting is planned to begin this fall before the Summer Olympics starts in 2012. According to THR, Boyle will enter the editing room after the Games.
