Boyle to make Trainspotting sequel?

Recommended Posts

Danny Boyle talks Trainspotting Sequel, Porno | /Film

I heard this was further into development? They have almost the entire original cast, and since trainspotting was released about ten years ago, the actors will have aged realistically as Porno is set ten years after trainspotting. But... Ewan McGregor is refusing to have anything to do with Boyle of Irvine Welsh after losing the leading role in the Beach to DiCaprio, so I think it will be a bit naff.

What does everybody else think about this? Will this ruin Trainspotting? Or do you think this could be just as powerful a film?

Personally I thought the film version Trainspotting was a major disappointment, so I don't really want them to butcher Porno as well.

Saw the film of The Acid House again recently and in my view it's a lot better than the film of Trainspotting.

The acid house is an abseloutely godly film, just pure genius.

I'd heavily advise anyone who enjoyed trainspotting to check out the acid house.

I quite liked the book and to be honest Renton is a more minor character in it so they could probably manage it without Ewan MacGregor, he isn't the be all and end all.

Totally loved the book, so funny!! But yeah agree with what you say, don't think it would make that much of a difference tbh

I just read Reheated Cabbage which features a new story starring "Juice" Terry, and Carl Ewart from Glue / Porno.

Juice Terry might be my favourite Irvine Welsh character ever.

I think Sick Boy is one of my favourite characters ever. He's so dislikeable he's brilliant.

Who was Carl again? Was that the ned with the massive cock in Porno?

Been meaning to pick it up.

Juice Terry at the Cannes porn festival "Some folk think I'm called Juice 'cause of the amount of juice I produce, but actually it's because I used to work on eth juice lorries..."
