20 Cult Favorite Movies That Were Supposed To Be TV Shows First
Trance was, really, originally envisioned as a feature film by director Danny Boyle, the problem was that no one else seemed to agree with him. Back in 1994, the screenwriter Joe Ahearne pitched the script to Danny who wanted to adapt it for the screen, but Joe wouldn’t give it away without directing it himself which does beg the question of why he decided to pitch it to a director, but whatever. Danny rightfully thought that was too big of a commitment for a first-time director and Joe made it into a television feature. Danny never stopped thinking about the script and eventually made his own big-screen version of the story in 2013 starring James McAvoy.
