James McAvoy has announced that he’s planning to star in Eran Creevy’s crime thriller Welcome to the Punch. According to The Playlist, the movie is in the vein of Michael Mann’s Heat “involves a London detective, Max Lewinsky (likely the role for McAvoy), whose old nemesis, an armed robber known as Red Diesel, reappears after five years away—but it’s only the tip of a massive conspiracy.” The Playlist adds that “the script’s mostly very strong, a gripping cop thriller with a scope and a level of action that’s quite uncommon for the British film industry.” For those unfamiliar with Creevy, he previously directed the low-budget drama Shifty, which became a cult hit in the UK, but was never released stateside.
Deadline reports that filming is expected to begin in July, which leaves time for McAvoy to make his rumored reunion with Atonement director Joe Wright in an adaptation of Anna Karenina. McAvoy will next be seen in theaters on June 3rd as the young Charles Xavier in X-Men: First Class.
