Danny Boyle says Trainspotting 2 might be his next movie

Danny Boyle's STEVE JOBS had a "work-in-progress" screening at the Telluride Film Festival, and after the showing of his new movie, Boyle said he's hopeful that his next project will be a sequel to TRAINSPOTTING. The director told Deadline that “All the four main actors want to come back and do it,” and “Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series." The two actors he's referring to are Once Upon A Time's Robert Carlyel and Elementary's Jonny Lee Miller.

John Hodge (who scripted the original movie) penned the script for TRAINSPOTTING 2, based on Porno, author Irvine Welsh's book sequel to his Trainspotting novel, and Boyle says Hodge's script is "terrific." A couple of years ago, Boyle talked a little about how the movie sequel will be different compared to the novel.

Although we will have Irvine Welsh involved, hopefully, it's going to be more about the same actors playing the same characters twenty-years later. And I think that's very rich because their original characters were hedonists, and pleasure seekers, who were prepared to take enormous risks as you do in your 20s. And you get away with it then. But obviously you get into your 40s and the body starts to creek and it's not quite so easy. So that will also throw up lots of things for them in terms of that sense of, ‘What have you done with your life? What happened in that 20 years? Are you still in the same town? Do you still have the same obsessions? Do you still have the same relationships with those people that you grew up with and that you shared that life with?’ And also for the audience watching it, they've also aged, so those who saw the original will have those same questions to ask themselves about their own lives.

If TRAINSPOTTING 2 does end up being Danny Boyle's next movie, production will likely begin some time next year, while STEVE JOBS, starring Michael Fassbender as the Apple Inc. co-founder, is scheduled to open on October 9, 2015.

Talent involved is a sell, but I think there's something to be said about that movie capturing a certain moment in time, not sure I really need to catch up with these characters 20 years later.

Awesome! Really hope this comes together. The book Porno wasn't as strong as Trainspotting, but still a fun read with great characters. With Boyle at the helm again, I'm really looking forward to this! Can't wait to see who will play Juice Terry!

never understood all the hype about that movie...

... as much as I love Danny Boyle, I do not understand all the the cult following about Trainspotting... not a bad movie by far, but not as great as I expected when I saw it... but, I have to say I saw it very late in my life (in my 30's), if I had seen it when it was released (1996, so when I was a teenager) I would have probably loved it more... maybe I get old... BUT, Danny Boyle amazes me (or at least surprises me) in every new movie, so I will be there at the opening week end...

Please let this be true!!

Might not be as good as the first. Hell probably not. But Trainspotting is still my favourite Danny Boyle movie, by far! Although Shallow Grave is pretty good too and the guy hasn't made any downright turds yet.
