Digital Spy has a new interview with Danny Boyle which grills him on his next film projects…because we all want to know! There have been tons of rumors surrounding his next film. Is it James Bond or a Mumbai thriller? Danny answers as close as possible!
“I can’t quite tell you about it because it’s not quite all signed, sealed and sorted out legal-wise,” he said about his next project. “It’s based on a true story so there were complications to do with rights, that kind of stuff. We’re close to solving it and hope to be shooting in March next year.”
Boyle clearly didn’t want to reveal too much, but saying that it’s “based on a true story” is all we need to know. The film he is talking about will tell the story of American mountain climber Aaron Ralston, who back in 2003 made headlines by getting his arm trapped under a boulder. To survive, he did the unimaginable by cutting his arm off with a dull knife.
Boyle did sign a 3 movie picture deal with Fox Searchlight, so this could be one of them. He also told us that he would love to do a thriller in Mumbai, so maybe the rumored Maximum City is another one.
