Danny Boyle (Shallow Grave) has signed on to direct heist-thriller Trance.

Boyle will reunite with his 127 Hours and Slumdog Millionaire producer Christian Colson, and are in talks with Fox Searchlight and Pathé for finance and distribution.

The film is described as an art heist gone wrong, with the dark, sexy, hard-edged tone of previous Boyle films. It will shoot in September, before Boyle turns his attention to the London 2012 Summers Olympics opening ceremony

Trance is then expected to be released in March 2013.
