Last month it was reported that director Danny Boyle (Steve Jobs, Trainspotting 2) is being eyed to direct the highly-anticipated James Bond 25, and now the director has confirmed his involvement in the project. During a red carpet interview at a New York screening of his FX series Trust, the filmmaker also essentially confirmed another report, that his involvement hinged on how the script comes out. Here's what the director had to say, confirming he is working on the script with his longtime writing collaborator John Hodge, while he's also working on a script for a Richard Curtis project that will shoot fairly soon.

"We are working on a script right now. And it all depends on that, really. I am working on a Richard Curtis script at the moment. We hope to start shooting that in six or seven weeks. Then Bond would be right at the end of the year.

Happy Birthday, Rosario Dawson!

Chris here, showering love an underpraised actress. It's Rosario Dawson's birthday! Dawson is always everywhere and usually when you least expect her - this year alone she's popped up on your TV screens (various Netflix Marvel shows), in animation (The Lego Batman Movie), and some good old schlock (Unforgettable). Those may be more populist fare, but she's always been something of an indie darling ever since her debut in the controversial Kids (1995), effortlessly charming no matter the genre or budget. By now after working with majors like Tarantino and Danny Boyle, you would think she would have some awards love somewhere to go with a tireless career. Nope, not even a Globe nomination for being the best part of Rent. I'd imagine once she lands in a major awards contender, that will quickly change.

Perhaps that omission is due to what a natural, unshowy presence Dawson is onscreen regardless

Directors' Trademarks: Danny Boyle

  • Cinelinx
Directors’ trademarks is a series of articles that examines the “signatures” that filmmakers leave behind in their work. This month, with the release of T2 Trainspotting, we’re looking at the trademark style and calling signs of Danny Boyle as director.

After almost deciding to become a priest early in his teens, Boyle instead found something else that sparked his interest; drama. He studied English and drama in college, and upon graduating worked for several theatre companies. Eventually, he began to direct productions, something he still does to this day between film projects. In 1987 he left theater to work for BBC in Ireland and became a producer and director of television shows. He directed several TV movies before making his first feature film in 1994, Shallow Grave. That film found widespread appeal in audiences and critics alike, and became the highest grossing British film in 1995. The success of that film allowed

T2 Trainspotting movie review: GenX running out of steam but chugging on

MaryAnn’s quick take… The sparse, cold satisfaction that could be wrung from Trainspotting’s punk insolence has been replaced by an exhausted cynicism. Which is exactly right. I’m “biast” (pro): love the 1996 film

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Choose life,” Mark Renton suggested back in 1996, when he was a heroin addict in Edinburgh. Mark’s advice was ironic, of course, because he “chose not to choose life” and was courting death by overdose or death by AIDS-acquired-via-a-shared-needle. But the life he was rebelling against was one of conformity and consumerism — “choose a fucking big television; choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers” — a life in which no one actually has much choice anyway. So, while Trainspotting hardly romanticizes drug addiction — the film’s depictions of the

T2: Trainspotting review

Ewan McGregor and the rest of the gang are back in Danny Boyle's sequel to Trainspotting. Here's our review of the unexpectedly moving T2...

Time can play cruel tricks. A recent strain of Hollywood movie showed us the cosy side of nostalgia - the dinosaurs roaring again in Jurassic World, the Millennium Falcon taking flight in Star Wars: The Force Awakens - but there can be a bittersweet, even cruel side to the lure of old memories.

For Renton (Ewan McGregor), heading back to his old stomping ground in Edinburgh after 20 years is akin to opening a box of old photographs. There’s a comfort at seeing old faces, but then the regret starts flooding back: the drugs, the alcohol, the friends he's lost and

New Trailer For M. Night Shyamalan’s Split Teases The Many Shades Of James McAvoy

Throughout his career across screens big and small, Scottish actor James McAvoy has accumulated quite the eccentric collection of roles. Perhaps best known for his portrayal of the young Professor X in Fox’s X-Men movies – and with it, a foray into blockbuster territory – McAvoy has turned in some truly spectacular, intense performances across the likes of Atonement, Trance and Filth, a role for which he nabbed the Best Actor gong at 2014’s British Independent Film Awards.

And so, following what is surely one of his final appearances as Charles Xavier in X-Men: Apocalypse, the Scott is primed to circle back to more dramatic affair with Split, a psychological drama hailing from the incomparable M. Night Shyamalan.

Heralding a creative reunion between Shyamalan and horror maestro Jason Blum – the pair had previously worked together on domestic thriller The VisitSplit places McAvoy in the shoes of Kevin, a troubled man

James McAvoy Will Fend Off An Alien Invasion In New Sci-Fi Pic Extinction

Though he’s expressed an interest in reprising the role of Professor X further down the line, following Apocalypse, James McAvoy’s tenure in Fox’s lucrative X-Men universe has effectively been put on ice for the time being, thereby allowing the Scottish actor to seek pastures anew.

Of course, his ties to the mutant franchise have in no way prevented McAvoy from snapping up roles in the past, after featuring across Victor Frankenstein, Filth and Danny Boyle’s psychological thriller Trance over the years. Nevertheless, Deadline reports that the actor is now circling back to full-blown sci-fi territory for Extinction, a new action-thriller hailing from Good Universe and Mandeville Films.

A self-confessed science fiction nut himself, McAvoy will anchor the pic as a troubled man fending off unsettling nightmares of his family in peril. That feeling of unease is amplified to the nth degree when an extra-terrestrial force descends into low Earth orbit,

Matt Damon open to another Bourne movie, if Paul Greengrass returns

With Jason Bourne topping the box office with an estimated domestic opening weekend of $60 million [read our reviews here and here], Matt Damon has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he’s open to another return to the spy franchise, assuming Paul Greengrass once again returns as director.

“Yeah, it’s definitely open,” states Damon, who has starred in four of the five Bourne movies to date, having skipped 2012’s The Bourne Legacy. “I’m tied to Paul, whatever he wants to do.”

“We’re friends, so it would always come up in conversation,” Damon added with regards to how Jason Bourne came about. “We didn’t want to dive into one unless we could make a movie that fit in that family and felt worthy. It’s kind of deceptively tricky, and so I think we were just leery of making it look like a job that was taken on cynically by any of us. To

Jason Bourne movie review: Bourne again, but why?

Everything looks great on paper here: Damon’s brawny presence; the smartly staged action, etc. And it’s not unfun. But it feels less black ops than old hat. I’m “biast” (pro): big fan of the Bourne series

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

It’s been nine years since we last saw Matt Damon racing around the world and beating people up as brainwashed assassin Jason Bourne… and the weight of those interim years rests heavily upon this fourth installment. Oh, it’s not that Damon (The Martian, Interstellar), now 46 years old, isn’t up to the physical demands of the role. In fact, his Bourne is significantly beefier here: bigger, more intimidating, just plain more dangerous in an all-muscle kind of way.
