James McAvoy is back on the big screen this autumn as he leads the cast in Filth.

Filth is the latest of Irvine Welsh's novels to be adapted for the big screen as the actor teams up with director Jon S. Baird.

This is the first film for Baird since Cass back in 2008 and he has adapted Welsh's novel for the big screen.

He has brought together a great cast for the film as McAvoy is joined by Jamie Bell, Imogen Poots, Eddie Marson, Jim Broadbent and Joanne Froggatt.

Scheming Bruce Robertson (McAvoy), a bigoted and corrupt policeman, is in line for a promotion and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

Enlisted to solve a brutal murder and threatened by the aspirations of his colleagues, including Ray Lennox (Bell), Bruce sets about ensuring their ruin, right under the nose of unwitting Chief Inspector Total.

As he turns his colleagues against one another by stealing their wives and exposing their secrets, Bruce starts to lose himself in a web of deceit that he can no longer control.

His past is slowly catching up with him, and a missing wife, a crippling drug habit and suspicious colleagues start to take their toll on his sanity. The question is: can he keep his grip on reality long enough to disentangle himself from the filth?

Filth is released 4th October.
