Boyle terrified of Olympic responsibility

London: Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle is terrified about directing the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games because he thinks it is a tough job to please the British.

"I didn`t even sleep on it. I just said, `I`ll do it!` (But) the British are difficult to please," quoted Boyle as saying.

The opening ceremony will be held July 27 in the new 80,000-seat Olympic stadium and Boyle is planning to use the spectators in the arena as part of his show.

"There`ll be expensive toys and a sound system but, when you think about it, something like the Mexican wave is amazing, isn`t it? That`s just using people in the stadium...They`ll have their voices and their feet, although it`s a concrete floor so they might not make much of an impression. But they can clap," he said.
