FILTH with author Irvine Welsh!

Author Irvine Welsh is stopping by to discuss the new adaptation of his book FILTH, about a drug-addicted, power-crazed cop who manipulates his way to secure a promotion he believes he deserves, starring James McAvoy.

James McAvoy is Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson – a sex, drugs, and power crazed cop with his sights set on a big promotion. He knows he’s the best man for the job, and he’s got the track record to prove it. Plus, his colleagues are bumbling idiots and don’t deserve it like he does. He’s confident in his abilities, there’s just one thing standing in his way: a murder that he has yet to solve. With his boss breathing down his neck to catch the perp, Bruce knows he has to get this case closed—and fast—so that he can get promoted, win back his wife and move on with his life. But nothing is as easy as it seems, and the harder Bruce tries to control the world around him, the more it unravels before his eyes.

From Irvine Welsh, the creator of TRAINSPOTTING, also starring Imogen Poots (NEED FOR SPEED), Jamie Bell (SNOWPIERCER) and Jim Broadbent (CLOUD ATLAS).
