Welsh will work with the father-son writing team Pete and John Adams on the next draft of the screenplay. He wrote “Trainspotting” as his first novel and recently co-wrote and directed “Good Arrows” through his Dust production banner.

“The Magnificent Eleven” is scheduled to shoot later this year. It’s a modernization of the “The Magnificent Seven” centered on a local amateur soccer team, a Tandoori restaurant and a group of menacing thugs.
