Danny Boyle Confirms Trainspotting Sequel
Director will start work on follow-up to iconic movie in 2016...
Danny Boylehas confirmed that he will be directing a sequel to his modern classic Trainspotting.
The filmmaker - who oversaw the critically acclaimed opening ceremony at the London 2012 Olympics last summer - has revealed that he will be starting work on a cinema adaptation of Irvine Welsh's follow-up novel Porno in 2016.
And the 56-year-old has also declared that he would like to see the original cast - which included Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Ewen Bremner - reprise their roles in the sequel.
He told The Playlist: "This has been a long time coming. There's always been this long-term plan for Trainspotting 2, if John can produce a decent enough script, I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back.
"I think they'll wanna know that the parts are good so they don't feel like they are letting anyone down."
The script is being handled by John Hodge, who wrote the screenplay for Trainspotting - along with those for Boyle's other movies Shallow Grave, A Life Less Ordinary and Trance.
