Danny Boyle Wants Porno Ready For 2016
Trainspotting sequel ramps up

Trainspotting

If you’ve read the latest issue of Empire, you’ll know we had a revealing chat with one of Britain’s best filmmakers, and the main brain behind last year’s spectacular Olympics Opening Ceremony, Mr Danny Boyle. He’s currently in Austin Texas, unveiling chunks of his latest, Trance, and he’s also been talking about the future, including that he wants his long-in-the-works Trainspotting sequel made by 2016.

Talking with the team at The Playlist as part of the press rounds for the fest, he’s admitted that he’s finally looking to get everyone back together for a follow up based on Irvine Welsh’s sequel book, Porno, which would reunite survivors such as Renton (Ewan McGregor) to see where their lives are now.

“This has been a long time coming," he says. "There's always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2, if John (Hodge) can produce a decent enough script, I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. I think they'll wanna know that the parts are good so they don't feel like they are letting anyone down."

And he’s clear about his reasons for finally getting down to it. "The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to make sure you don't disappoint people. "That will be the only criteria I think."

Of course, it’s not the only project he has in development, as the busy filmmaker is also working on not one but two period pieces, one adapted from a book he won’t name, the other a script by Hodge. It would seem he’s focusing on Porno for now though, mostly so it can arrive in 2016, 20 years after Trainspotting blew onto screens.

Oh, and if you haven’t read the latest Empire, you can remedy that by heading to all good neutral and some chaotic evil newsagents, or via the iPad.

RE: Ewan
I'm sure I read elsewhere that McGregor was working on the script with Miller...? More

RE: Ewan
Huge fan of Trainspotting, both the novel and the film. Gonna be interested to see what Boyle does with Porno though! More

Ewan
I'm not sure McGregor will wanna get involved in this will he? I thought him and Boyle fell out when he didnt cast him in The Beach? More

Would have been better covering Glue 1st.
I would have loved a Danny Boyle take on the Novel Glue before he touches this one. For a start it is a far superior book to Porno but also so that you are up to speed with the recurring characters that show up in Porno. More
