James McAvoy is set to star in new thriller 'Trance'.
The film tells the story of an assistant at an art auction house planning a daring robbery alongside a notorious gang leader (McAvoy). However, the assistant suffers a blow to the head and loses his memory, prompting the gang to try to pry the information on the stolen painting's whereabouts from his puzzled brain using a hypnotist's skills.
Oscar-winning director Boyle is aiming to start shooting the movie in September, before he concentrates on co-ordinating the opening ceremony for the 2012 London Olympics.
Once that's over, he will edit the film, before it is released in March 2013.
