According to Danny Boyle, director of Trainspotting, the long hinted at sequel to the 1996 film is inching closer to reality. “All the four main actors want to come back and do it,” he told Deadline. “Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.”
Boyle also told Deadline that Hodge’s script for what they’re calling Trainspotting 2 is terrific, that the actors all want to do it and reiterated that it will be the director’s next film depending on the actors’ U.S. TV schedules. Hodge wrote the sequel script based on Welsh’s Porno, which was the author’s own sequel to his original Trainspotting novel. Hodge also wrote the screenplays for Boyle-directed movies A Life Less Ordinary, The Beach and Trance.
“Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.” Boyle said. And, just guessing here, figuring out how characters who did all that heroin 20 year ago made it out alive.
