Oh, to be the hottest shit in Hollywood. Leonardo DiCaprio did it, Colin Farrell did it, and the massive dump Brittany Murphy just took at the Chateau Marmont did it. Now its James McAvoys turn. Was his performance in ATONEMENT snubbed by Oscar? Who cares. Hes getting offered roles left, right, center, and perpendicularly. Variety is reporting that hes in talks to star in the comedy thriller PERRIERS BOUNTY, about three fugitives running from a kingpin gangster, who is out for revenge after the accidental death of one of his cronies. The film will be directed by Ian Fitzgibbon, whos done mainly TV stuff until now. Im imagining this to be along the lines of IN BRUGES, a crass, blokey, British romp. McAvoy can next be seen in WANTED, the comic-book adaptation with Angelina Jolie that will prove if this wily thesp can handle slo-mo gunfights.
Extra Tidbit: Actress Anne-Marie Duff is also in talks to star, and by the sheer force of synchronicity, she happens to be married to McAvoy too.

Yay for James McAvoy. I've been a fan since Children of Dune and it's awesome to see him get some deserved fame. So few stars of cult sci-fi things go on to do much else, good on him.
