Ceremony stars join Boyle for film

Danny Boyle's latest film is psychological thriller Trance

Danny Boyle is reuniting with some of the stars who helped deliver the spectacular London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.

The Slumdog Millionaire and Trainspotting director has teamed up with Underworld's Rick Smith and chart star Emeli Sande for the soundtrack of his new film, Trance.

Rick, who masterminded the music for the Olympic ceremony, has written and recorded the original score for the psychological thriller.

Double Brit Award winner Emeli, who performed at London 2012, sings on and has co-written one of the tracks.

The vocals of actress Rosario Dawson, who began dating Boyle after she was cast in Trance, can also be heard on one of the songs.

Emeli said: "It was wonderful to work with Rick again after the amazing time I had with him putting together the track for the opening ceremony at the Olympics.

"I was honoured to be asked to collaborate with him again for the film and, with his help, I believe we have created something very special."

Danny said: "Trance reaches back to the darker more anarchic spirit of films like Trainspotting on which Rick was a key collaborator."

Trance, which stars James McAvoy, is the story of a fine art auctioneer and a criminal gang who join forces with a hypnotherapist to recover a lost painting.
