FROM Danny Boyle
Filmmaker Danny Boyle The Business contributor John Horn of the L.A. Times sits down with Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle to talk about his film ' Trance ' and the producing of the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics . Boyle spent two years planning, preparing and orchestraing the spectacular event for the Summer Games. So, in order to keep himself from being driven crazy by the slow, committee-heavy process he also directed a stage play of 'Frankenstein' and he made his new movie 'Trance.' He talks about how the Olympics affected the movie and vice versa, why he wanted to make a film with a strong female character, and that he took the Olympics job because it was his national duty.
