Imogen Poots And Others Join James McAvoy In Filth
ThePlaylist reports a slew of additions to the adaptation of the Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting) novel Filth. They say that Imogen Poots (28 Weeks Later, Fright Night), Eddie Marsan (Sherlock Holmes) and Jim Broadbent (Hot Fuzz, Iron Lady) have joined the cast. James McAvoy plays a sex-obsessed, cocaine-addicted, bigoted Scottish police officer who is supposed to be investigating a murder but gets sidetracked by his own peculiarities. The rest of the cast includes Jamie Bell (Hallam Foe), Joanne Froggatt, Kate Dickie (Prometheus, Game of Thrones), Shirley Henderson (Harry Potter) and Shauna Macdonald (The Decent).
