Danny Boyle Confirms Sequel To Trainspotting!

Oh, boy! Those are characters we're not sure that we want to see again!

Fresh off the heels of 127 Hours, Danny Boyle has revealed that he at some point hopes to revisit one of his earlier works, Trainspotting, by making a sequel to the 1996 film!

The original flick - which starred Ewan McGregor and Johnny Lee Miller - was based on the novel by Irvine Welsh, and already has a follow-up, Porno, and it includes all of the original characters - just now middle-aged!

Boyle explains:

'It will happen, I think. I mean, we'll approach them all again about it, but it will depend on what place they're all at. We have a very strong idea that it would be a wonderful thing to reapproach, to do again, when they have aged clearly into a mid-life kind of crisis, basically. They're not quite there yet, I don't think.'

As squeamish as it will no doubt make us, we definitely would love to Porno on the big screen!

But Boyle is right to want to wait until he can secure the entire cast back!

If anyone can make this one work, it's him, so we're excited to see this one develop!

Thoughts??

    If Underworld scores the music, like in the first one, I will love it.

    I couldn't understand a word of the dialogue in the movie, and had to have dear daughter translate it for me.

    Porno takes place 9 years later for Christ's sake. They're clearly old enough, plus there's always the benefit of make-up magic. Welsh has been saying this for years. Let's GOOOO already!

    It's true! The sequel started shooting on Monday near Toronto. The cast includes: Scottish actor Adam Sinclair, Vancouver-born Kristin Kreuk of ”Smallville” fame, and Billy Boyd from "Lord of the Rings". Irvine Welsh shot his cameo today…

    You would love to Porno on the big screen? Huh????? God, learn to re-read your stuff before you post it.

    I believe it when people say the book is amazing; however, Trainspotting (as good as the movie is) was difficult to get through and I'm not sure I can bring myself to watch Porno. We'll see.

    Didn,t Ewan fall out with Boyle? I love Irvines books, they,re SO twisted!Can,t wait!

    It's going to be "Ecstasy" not "Porno" that is the next film adaption. They are scouting locations and extras in my hometown, Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario right now.
