Carlyle To Ply Meat Trade

JAMES BOND star ROBERT CARLYLE is to appear in a macabre new movie, written by TRAINSPOTTING creator IRVINE WELSH.

Carlyle, whose Hollywood career was kick-started after he starred as psychotic BEGBIE in the 1995 film based on Welsh's seminal Scottish drama, will team up with British comedian RIK MAYALL as a pair of body snatchers in THE MEAT TRADE when it begins filming next spring (05).

Speaking at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL, Welsh says of the film, "It's on the crude side. It's a bit like introducing SWEENEY TODD to Trainspotting."
