Danny Boyle’s Sequel For Trainspotting Includes Ewan McGregor, Actor Thrilled For Long-Awaited Follow-Up

Director Danny Boyle will once again raise merry hell in Edinburgh, Scotland for Trainspotting 2. Read on for more details.

Boyle was interviewed by Deadline during the afterparty of the screening of the titular biopic of Apple founder Steve Jobs which starred Michael Fassbender.


“All the four main actors want to come back and do it,” Boyle said.

Also, the 58-year-old British director revealed about his next project will be the long-awaited sequel to the 1996 movie. Boyle though admitted that the real issue would be getting a hold of all their working schedules that it will all fit well as two of the actors are currently involved in an American TV series.

Jonny Lee Miller, who played peroxide blonde boy toy Sick Boy, is part of CBS’s “Elementary” as an updated Sherlock Holmes. Robert Carlyle, infamously remembered as the foul-mouthed psychotic Begbie, is cast as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold in the ABC family fantasy series “Once Upon A Time.”

Other actors who were part of film based on Irvin Welsh’s novel of the same name. The novel talked about the unflinching account of drug use and gritty urban realism of being unemployed were Ewen Bremmer (“Pearl Harbor”) and Kelly MacDonald (“No Country for Old Men”).

Actor Ewan McGregor whose portrayal of Mark “Rent Boy” Renton pushed him into the public spotlight was ecstatic during an interview with The Guardian about the possibility of a sequel and affirmed that,”I miss working with Danny, I did some of my best work with him and he’s one of my favorite directors I’ve worked with.

The sequel will again be written by John Hodges with the source material as Welsh’s 2002 Porno, a follow-up set almost a decade after the consequences of Trainspotting.

Currently titled “Trainspotting 2,” the new film is written by John Hodges (who also scripted the first film), and based on Walsh’s 2002 book “Porno,” a sequel set 10 years after the events of Trainspotting. Sick Boy has his own homecoming which involves him indulging in the business of underground porno films while a sobered-up Renton lives in far-away Amsterdam.
