Ewan on Trainspotting Sequel!

| Filed under: Film FlickersEwan McGregor

Renton Might Return To The Big Screen

Ewan McGregor gets approached by people all the time. The number one thing they ask about? A Trainspotting sequel!

Well, Ewan recently responded to the demand for a part two:

"It's still the main thing people ask me about when they come up to me in the street. It's not something that I would completely dismiss off-hand until I've seen a script. I don't like being the guy that's making it not happen, especially when all the other guys want to make it."

The author of the first story DID pen a sequel called Porno, but Ewan wasn't a huge fan of it:

"I wouldn't want to do a sequel to 'Trainspotting' if it was just for the sake of it and, if I'm honest about it, I wasn't that blown away by the book. There's too many poor sequels in the world."

Understandable, Ewan!

We don't completely think it's necessary to have a sequel unless they put the proper amount of love and effort into it, so until we see someone step up to the plate with amazing intentions, we'll stick with the original.

How about that worst toilet in Scotland scene?? Just think about it, LOLz!

Would U like to see Renton again??

    sequal with the same actors? I think they might be a bit too old to play irresponsible baby killers.



  2. 2

    Yes, I would love a good sequel.
    Please have subtitles, 'cuz I couldn't understand an effin' word.



  3. 3

    I'd love to see a sequel if the film is actually good; there's no point in making something terrible just so there's a sequel. I'd also like to see it filmed in Leith.



  4. 4

    The actors are too old to pull of the roles of 20-something heroin junkie delinquants. And no I wouldn't want to see a sequel. And no I don't want to see any more of the worst toilet in Scotland. Or dead babies decomposing in their cribs.

    Re: luvs2tango – Try living here…

    Re: Q*bert – Well, since the book is set a decade later, I don't think that's such a problem. I dunno, I liked the second book. It had a good mix of humor and sadness.

    You guys are a bunch of dumbasses. They're not going to pick up where they left off, as 20-something heroin addicts. The sequel is about where they are NOW, all these years later, after the first Trainspotting movie, so actually they are the perfect ages. Idiots.

    Re: AmeliePoulain – Amelie, shut the fuck up, noone said they would be playing 20 something, it is about them being too old PERIOD!!!! Go jump from a bridge and make sure there are plenty of rocks at the bottom.

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – No point to film it there, Leith is now redeveloped and full of executive flats and wine bars

    I think it would be difficult to make a sequel that would be as good as Trainspotting. Having seen the screen adaptation of 'Acid House' I think one screenplay of Irvine Welsh's work was enough.

    YEEEES

    Re: maomi33 – There's still rough areas in Leith I wouldn't go to after dark - and some parts I'd avoid during the day. It's not all Martin Wishart and upscale bars.



  13. 13

    I wouldn't. Why mess with perfection? That'd be like doing a sequel to Pulp Fiction.

    Re: diamondheart – YOU need to shut the fuck up. You clearly have no idea what the sequel is about. They are SUPPOSED to be "old" in the sequel. Many years have passed since their Trainspotting days and it's about how their lives are now. And seriously, Ewan just turned 40 years old today. If you call that "old" then you must be fucking 12.



  15. 15

    Re: Serena Loves Mario – but not the Leith that Irvine portrayed in Trainspotting believe me, I live in Leith.



  16. 16

    Re: maomi33 – I don't head that far north in the city too often, and when I do I'm at one of Leith's posher establishments, so I'll take your word for it.



  17. 17

    Re: AmeliePoulain – I remember when I thought 40 was old… now I think, "They're ONLY 40?!?".
