Irvine Welsh novel comes to life - new stills from Filth starring James McAvoy
The Fan Carpet brings you some small stills from the upcoming film Filth - the adaptation of the Irvine Welsh novel. Welsh (Trainspotting) is known for his hard-edge and often funny writing style.
The film will follow Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson (James McAvoy), who is a cross between Harvey Keitel in Bad Lieutenant and John Belushi in Animal House. His task is to nab a killer who has brained the son of the Ghanaian ambassador, but bigoted Bruce is more urgently concerned with coercing sex from teenage Ecstasy dealers, planning vice tours of Amsterdam, and mulling over his lurid love life.
Filth stars James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent, Jamie Bell, Eddie Marsan, and Imogen Poots and is being directed by Jon S Baird - we are still however awaiting a UK release date. Filth was shot in Scotland, Belgium,Germany and Sweden.
Interesting tagline for the film... "This Little Piggy went to town!"
