The last time we checked in on casting for Danny Boyle‘s Trance, there was some confusion as to would-be star Michael Fassbender‘s involvement with the project. Now it seems Fassbender is definitely out, thanks to “scheduling issues” — but happily, Boyle’s top choice to replace him seems just as good. The director is reportedly looking to cast Colin Firth in the role recently vacated by Fassbender. Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson is leading the shortlist of actresses for the heist thriller’s female lead. Read more details after the jump.
