Danny Boyle is interested in celebrating the twenty-year anniversary of 1996's Trainspotting by adapting Porno, author Irvine Welsh's sequel to the original novel. "I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan [McGregor] or any of the cast coming back," Boyle says. "I think they'll wanna know that the parts are good so they don't feel like they are letting anyone down." He adds that "the only criteria" is to not disappoint fans of the original.
 
Porno was a great book, totally different than Trainspotting in terms of themes and story. I've been hoping Boyle would direct it. Let's hope he gets the same cast.

Wasn't the book more focused on Sickboy?
 
I havent read Porno, but if (and that's a big IF) they can come up with a great story for all he characters i'm all for it. If not, leave it alone. IMO the entire cast has to be back though.
 
I would like Ewan and the rest of the cast to look nothing like their younger counterparts. Rent Boy should look like Obi-Wan.

You don't have to worry about that, if they stay faithful to the book.
 
I think out of the cast, Ewan looks pretty much the same.
 
Yup. And I think they'lre make Renton the hero again. For better or worse.
 
I had to go read wikipedia's summary of this last night and omg hearing about Sick Boy sending Begbie gay porn while he's in prison just the thought of it had me dying laughing. This movie would be so great
 
[BLACKOUT]She won't be in it at all if they stay close to the book.[/BLACKOUT]
 
Looks like it is finally happening now that Ewan McGregor has made up with Danny Boyle.

Now they just need to find a filming schedule that can accommodate the others. Ewen Bremner is easily available but Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle both have their TV shows.
 
Danny Boyle Looking to Direct Trainspotting Sequel Next

In 1996, the crime thriller Trainspotting, based on Irvine Welsh’s novel, introduced much of the world to a number of talented actors and a filmmaker who would go on to win an Oscar 13 years later. In the nearly 20 years since Danny Boyle directed his groundbreaking second film, he’s been asked about a long-proposed sequel that would be made based on Welsh’s follow-up novel Porno.
That sequel would bring together the original cast of Trainspotting including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Ewan Bremner, who would be playing the same characters 20 years later. (Kevin McKidd’s character died from a drug overdose in Trainspotting.)
While doing press at the Telluride Film Festival where Boyle’s latest film Steve Jobs had its unofficial premiere over the weekend, the filmmaker was asked about the sequel–as he has been asked every single time he talks to any journalist–and it’s being reported now that he plans for Trainspotting 2 (or whatever it ends up being called) to be his next movie.
Boyle told Deadline that the only thing that might hold up the sequel is the busy schedule of the four main actors, telling them: “Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.”
Jonny Lee Miller is the star of CBS’ popular show “Elementary” and Carlyle regularly appears on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.”
 
I hope it works out
 
This started filming already. I didn't even know.
 
The article says Kelly Macdonald is back. This is the first place I have seen that mentioned. Is it confirmed? It is literally the most important thing to me about film. :funny:

Does her character even appear in the book? Been a while since i read it.
