Variety is brining us some very exciting news today as they report that Michael Fassbender could very well be the star of Danny Boyle‘s next film, Trance. The actor is currently one of Hollywood’s fastest rising stars. He just wrapped X-Men: First Class and is currently at work on Ridley Scott‘s Prometheus. He also has a number of other high profile projects in the works and it seems like he’s truly taking over Hollywood.
Trance is about an art heist goes wrong and Boyle plans to shoot in September. That being said, the film won’t hit theatres until March 2013 due to Boyle’s Olympic Games commitments. But if he were to team up with Fassbender, I’d be down to wait a few years to see it. I could only imagine the results that the two of them would produce.
Both Boyle and Fassbender are at the top of their games right now. Boyle hasn’t made a bad film in a very long time and Fassbender is currently rising to the top of the Hollywood ranks. It seems like a match made in Heaven and I really hope it works out. If Fassbender signs on you can be sure that he’ll draw in some other heavy hitters.
The way Trance is shaping up right now, I can already smell the Oscar nominations.
