Danny Boyle Updates SXSW On Transpotting Sequel And Trance

[b][url=http://watchidentityth]Watc h Identity Thief Online[/url][/b] Danny Boyle’s track record with Texas film festivals runs deep, having screened Slumdog Millionaire at the Austin Film Festival on its way to an Academy Award win for Best Picture and Director back in 2008. As much as he wanted to screen his latest film, Trance, at this year's South By Southwest fest, an agreement with Pathe guaranteed that the James McAvoy and Rosario Dawson vehicle would hold its official premiere in Europe this week. That didn’t stop Boyle from attending SXSW with a chunk of scenes from Trance under his arm, which were shown during a rollicking and informative panel at the Vimeo Theatre on Saturday afternoon. Hosted by NY Times columnist David Carr, the gathering felt like a cinematic celebration of Boyle’s stunning career achievements, running through clips on commentary from films like Shallow Grave, Trainspotting and a montage of snapshots from hits like 127 Hours, Millions, Sunshine and 28 Days Later.

[b][url=http://watchdeadmandow]Watch Dead Man Down Online[/url][/b] Boyle didn’t spend all of his time in Austin looking back, though. The Playlist quotes the director as saying that he’s working on adapting Irvine Welsh’s sequel to Trainspotting, called Porno, and he believes he can get the original cast to commit to doing it by 2016. There's always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2, if John [Hodge] can produce a decent enough script, I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. I think they'll wanna know that the parts are good so they don't feel like they are letting anyone down.… The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to make sure you don't disappoint people. That will be the only criteria I think."

Out of context, it was a thrilling scene that gave away little about the supposedly twisty plot. But Carr, who had seen the finished film prior to the SXSW panel, seemed shocked Boyle chose to show that particular scene, saying,“You kind of opened up your kimono there, buddy,” the journalist joked, though Boyle ensured the crowd that Trance is a movie “entirely about secrets” and the fun of the movie is trying to figure out which of the three main characters we’re supposed to root for.

He spoke of the fun – and the frustrations – that came with serving as the artistic director of the London Olympics.(When I spoke with Boyle in person after the panel, I asked him about possibly directing a James Bond film, which he politely declined.) He said that he turned down knighthood, which was offered, because “that kind of world isn’t my cup of tea. And he admitted that his musical inspirations likely come from his daughters at this stage of his life. So if you like the music he and Smith put together for Trance, be sure to thank them.
