Los Angeles: ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ director Danny Boyle says tries to pick up different subjects while directing a movie because he likes being in the unknown territory.
The Oscar-winner has done films on drug addicts, thrillers, real-life stories and a film on Mumbai slums.
Speaking at the BAFTA awards, Boyle said, "We always try to do films that are slightly different than the last one, and that`s partly trying to chase this dream of getting back to that place of not knowing what you`re doing.
"You?re trying to get back to an innocence where there is something wonderful about having to research a particular genre," he added.
His next movie "Trance", starring James McAvoy, Rosario Dawson and Vincent Cassel, combines art heist, amnesia and a femme fatale, the Hollywood Reporter said.
"It`s not really about a stolen painting. It`s actually about stolen memories. It`s not really about amnesia. It`s actually about forgetting as a behavioral choice. And it`s not really about a femme fatale in the classical sense."
‘Trance’ will release in theatres on April 5.
