Danny Boyle Sort of Confirms Trainspotting 2
Our favorite band of quirky, Scottish heroin addicts will return to the big screen, according to director Danny Boyle.
Boyle recently told Cinematical he has plans for a Trainspotting sequel, but fans may have to wait a few years to see it. “It will happen, I think,” he said. “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 do again when they have aged clearly into a mid-life kind of crisis. They’re not quite there yet, I don’t think.”
The 1996 flick was based on the Irvine Welsh novel of same name, and Boyle said he’s working on adapting the plot of Welsh’s follow-up, Porno. “The book Porno is not a great book in the way that the original novel is genuinely a masterpiece — as a piece of writing,” he said. “But we have been doing some work on it, and it’s got potential, for sure. And when the moment’s right, I think we will approach it.”
Sounds like while Boyle gets the wheels in motion, you’ll have plenty of time to choose life, choose a job, choose a career and…well, you know the rest.
