Danny Boyle Is Making 'Trainspotting 2' with Original Cast
Published Sep 07, 2015Veteran director Danny Boyle is heading into Oscar season with the long-awaited Steve Jobs film, but he's already got his next project all mapped out. The filmmaker has just revealed that he's making a sequel to his breakthrough 1996 film Trainspotting, and he'll use its original cast.
Speaking with Deadline during Telluride, Boyle said, "All the four main actors want to come back and do it," adding, "Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series."
Boyle has reteamed with screenwriter John Hodge, who adapted Trainspotting from Irvine Welsh's novel. For the sequel, Hodge has adapted Welsh's Porno, itself a sequel to the Trainspotting book.
Stay tuned for more information on the film that's currently referred to as Trainspotting 2 as it becomes available. Meanwhile, Steve Jobs arrives on October 9.
