New Trailer For Irvine Welsh Adaptation Shows James McAvoy Engaged in Some 'Filth'
Recently, we reported on the precarious state of Danny Boyle's hopes at directing a Trainspotting sequel by 2016. We may have to hang in balance for that one, but fans of Irvine Welsh can look forward to another book-to-film translation coming sometime in the fall.
According to SlashFilm, Filth, based on Welsh's 1998 novel of the same name, is written and directed by Jon S. Baird (Green Street Hooligans) and stars James McAvoy as Bruce Robertson, "a corrupt cop trying to solve a brutal murder while clawing his way to the top." The score is by Clint Mansell, who is the bad ass behind most Darren Aronofsky film soundtracks.
Watch the Filth trailer below, though be advised: it's quite NSFW, so make sure your boss isn't around.
What does everyone think? I haven't read the book, so I couldn't say whether the adaption looks faithful or not, but it does look like a cool movie.
