Subject: Danny Boyle working on Getty TV drama

Written By: Philip Eno on 03/10/16 at 8:33 am

British director Danny Boyle, whose films include Steve Jobs, Trainspotting and Slumdog Millionaire, is to make a 10-part series for US TV about oil dynasty heir John Paul Getty III.

The first episode - which Boyle will directed - is set in 1973, when the young Getty was kidnapped by the Mafia. 

Variety describes the FX series, Trust, as "equal parts family history, dynastic saga and satirical examination of the corrosive power of money".

The drama reunites Boyle with Simon Beaufoy, Slumdog's Oscar-winning screenwriter.

John Paul Getty III died in 2011 at the age of 54.
