Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. We've been hearing a lot about Danny Boyle's next film, Trance, recently when James McAvoy joined in and it was rumored he was replacing his First Class co-star Michael Fassbender, which wasn't the case. He was playing another character.
Now it seems that Fassbender is having to walk due to scheduling conflicts and our pals at Twitch say that Colin Firth is on the top of Boyle's shortlist to replace him.
Twitch also says that Scarlett Johansson tops a list that also contains Zoe Saldana and Melanie Thierry for another role in the heist film about an art thief who takes a blow to the head and suffers insomnia. The problem is that he was the only one who knows the location of the painting he and his gang just stole. They suspect he may be up to something tricksy and hire a hypnotist to try to recover the location of the painting.
Whatever happens, I'm sure Boyle will end up with a great cast and make a great movie. He's on quite the run right now, no?
