James McAvoy to Star in Danny Boyle's 'Trance'?

Jun 23, 2011 | 1:44pm EDT

ALTDanny Boyle has found a movie to shoot before he helms some quaint side-project thing called the London Olympics in 2012, and James McAvoy may be his lead actor.

McAvoy, star of this summer's X-Men: First Class, is in talks to play Simon, the leader of a gang of thieves who suffers amnesia following an art heist gone awry.

If he were to accept the role, it'd come after his X-Men costar Michael Fassbender -- who is set to be almost everyone's costar over the next couple years -- turned the role down.

Trance would mark Boyle's first directorial outing since last year's Best Picture-nominated 127 Hours.
