Rosario Dawson just scored herself a prime role in the upcoming Danny Boyle film Trance opposite James MCavoy and Vincent Cassel, while Simon Pegg is stepping away from the tentpoles to star in the $5 million A Fantastic Fear of Everything.

In Trance, Dawson will play a woman involved with both an art thief (McAvoy) and his spurned accomplice (Cassel), developing what Deadline calls an “unusual relationship” with both men. It will begin filming this fall before Boyle is called upon to direct the 2012 Summer Olympics opening ceremonies in London. Will Dawson’s turn here restore her credibility after acting opposite Kevin James in The Zookeeper? I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Of course it won’t.

Pegg, whose credibility is safe for the next 10,000 years or so, is garnering even more points by starring in A Fantastic Fear of Everything. He will play a children’s book author who, in making the transition to crime novels, does research on Victorian serial killers. In doing so, the already cowardly Pegg becomes paranoid that everyone around him is a potential threat to his safety. The film is directed by Crispian Mills, the former lead singer of indie darlings Kula Shakur. Simon Pegg has had nary a misstep in his film career, save for Run Fatboy Run and How To Lose Friends and Alienate People. But he’s done like 600 movies since then, so who really remembers?

Danny Boyle knows what he wants. In this instance it’s Colin Firth and Scarlett Johansson for his heist film Trance.

It’s reported that James McAvoy is locked for the lead role of Simon and his X-Men: First Class bestie Michael Fassbender will not be joining the film as believed previously. Boyle has his eye on Firth to fill the role vacated by Fassbender and wants Scarlett for a major supporting role. Though no info about plot or character is given, we can assume they’re all playing sexy thieves who with their fast hands and forbidden passions will steal your diamonds, and perhaps more.

No formal offers have gone out yet but it’s said “who Boyle wants, Boyle gets.” Except Michael Fassbender. (Cinema Blend)

James McAvoy is in the wrong place at the wrong time, Robin Williams is gonna bug the hell out of a bunch of A-listers, and Tom Wilkinson will be an over-the-top villain. Let’s get going…

James McAvoy is close to teaming up with fellow Brit Danny Boyle for Trance, a heist thriller that would see him playing a character named Simon who is stuck in the middle of a botched bank job. Michael Fassbender was first attached to this project, but apparently he put it aside when he decided to do every other movie in Hollywood. (Variety)

Robin Williams is also circling Gently Down the Stream, a rom-com that would feature Robert DeNiro and Diane Keaton as a divorced couple that pretends to be married for the sake of their kids. Robin Williams will play an obnoxious priest, just like he did in License to Wed. Old Robert De Niro never would have put up with Williams’ B.S., but times hav echanged. The film will also star Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace, Amanda Seyfried, and Katherine “Buzzkill” Heigl. (Showbiz 411)

Finally, Tom Wilkinson will be gracing The Lone Ranger with his presence as a railroad tycoon, which one can safely read as “bad guy. I am now openly rooting for Wilkinson to prevail over both Armie Hamer’s Lone Ranger and Johnny Depp’s Tonto. I’m tired of seeing Johnny Depp prevail, and Armie Hamer will always be a snooty Winklevoss in my eyes. I hope whatever damsel Wilkinson ties to the train tracks gets run the hell over. (Variety)

Director Danny Boyle loves making movies. That love is evident in all of his work, no matter how grim the subject matter. And it hopefully will be evident in his next project, Trance. Not much in the way of plot information, except that it’s “an art heist gone wrong, and it’s got the dark, sexy, hard-edged tone of Boyle films like Shallow Grave and Trainspotting.”

That sounds pretty good to me – an added bonus being that Trance is a really cool title. Another bonus is that Trance will continue Boyle’s partnership with producer Christian Colson, who also produced 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire.

Don’t get too excited, though – because of Boyle’s obligations as the director of the opening ceremonies of next summer’s Olympic Games, Trance won’t be coming out until March, 2013. How many pun-headlines about the word “trance” will we see before then? (Deadline)
