Danny Boyle to direct the opening ceremony for the 2012 Olympic Games
Boyle is to be the artistic director for the London Olympic Games in 2012. Danny Boyle that is, not the offensive comedian Frankie, mind you having the comedy genius in charge would spice things up a little wouldn't it? Anyway, back to the genius behind films such as Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting and a list of more classic movies that stretches down his Internet Movie Database page.
The director is said to be 'honoured' to be given the role, speaking on Radio bore, sorry 4's Today programme Danny said that his recent addition to his Curriculum Vitae was "to provide a thrilling, enthralling, captivating evening."
Seeing as Boyle was behind the greatest British drama of all time we wonder if he will merge his talents from Trainspotting with the behind-the-scenes dramas of the Olympians. For instance portraying a few athletics jacking up in the toilet before they participate in the 500 metres?
