Danny Boyle has confirmed plans for a sequel to his hit movie Trainspotting, which is set for release next year 20 years after the original film was released.
Based on a novel by sometime Dublin resident, Irvine Welsh, Trainspotting was Boyle’s first major hit and is often attributed to launching the career of megastar Ewan McGregor. Trainspotting still regularly features in the top British movie lists and also starred Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner and Jonny Lee Miller
“All the four main actors want to come back and do it,” said Boyle. “Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.”
McGregor has previously confirmed he would like to return as his character, Renton. Miller plays Sherlock Holmes in Elementary and Carlyle is a regular on Once Upon A Time.
Boyle’s latest movie, about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, has screened to positive reviews at the Telluride film festival in Italy.
