'Trainspotting 2' Is Next for Director Danny Boyle

7 September 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Twenty years in the making, it sounds like Trainspotting 2 is ready to go! The movie will be a follow-up to the 1996 cult hit Trainspotting, with original director Danny Boyle saying it will be his next project. He revealed the big news this past weekend at the Telluride after-party for the "work-in-progress" screening of his latest movie, the biopic Steve Jobs. About getting the sequel off the ground, he had this to say to Deadline.

"All the four main actors want to come back and do it. Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series."

The four main cast members in question, who headlined the original, include Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle. Kevin McKidd was also a main cast member, but his character died in the first Trainspotting. Kelly Macdonald was the female lead, »

Danny Boyle Wants To Do "Trainspotting 2"

7 September 2015 5:44 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The long talked about follow-up to Danny Boyle's seminal 1996 film "Trainspotting" looks to be ready to go, with only scheduling issues being the hold up.

Appearing at Telluride for the premiere of his new "Steve Jobs" biopic, Boyle says he's planning for the "Trainspotting" sequel to be his next film. He tells Deadline:

"All the four main actors want to come back and do it. Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together, which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series."

The four actors he's referring to are Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle, and Kevin McKidd. Miller is committed as the lead in CBS' "Elementary" while McKidd has a regular slot on ABC's "Grey's Anatomy". Both actors may be able to do it though when their series go on hiatus from March - July next year.

Trainspotting 2: Danny Boyle confirms that all four leads want to return

7 September 2015 5:22 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Trainspotting director Danny Boyle has confirmed that all four leads are keen to return for the sequel.

Boyle suggested to Deadline that the main obstacle now is accommodating everyone's busy schedules.

"All the four main actors want to come back and do it," Boyle said. "Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together, which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series."

Robert Carlyle currently stars in Once Upon a Time, while Jonny Lee Miller stars in Elementary. Ewan McGregor and Ewen Bremner also featured in the original film, alongside Kevin McKidd and Kelly Macdonald.

The script, written by John Hodge, is based on author Irvine Welsh novel Porno - the sequel to the Trainspotting book release.

Interestingly, Carlyle recently suggested that any movie version of Porno would need a rewrite given the changes in internet pornography since the novel was written.

7 September 2015 4:55 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Danny Boyle's lust for life has not waned since "Trainspotting" came out in 1996. A sequel to the edgy Scottish drug movie has been discussed for years now, but the director sounded confident when updating Deadline on "Trainspotting 2."

The original movie, based on Irvine Welsh's novel, was written by John Hodge. Danny Boyle told Deadline that Hodge's script for the sequel is terrific, and said it will be his own next film, depending on the actors' schedules. "All the four main actors want to come back and do it," Boyle said. "Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series."

Those "two of them" are apparently Jonny Lee Miller ("Elementary") and Robert Carlyle ("Once Upon a Time"), who were featured in the original along with main star Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Kelly Macdonald, and Kevin McKidd, »

Bluray/DVD Review: Dog Soldiers

23 June 2015 2:46 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Scream Factory never lets up, do they? While all of their output isn’t pure gold (I’m still recovering from Tentacles), the fact is that the majority of the films that they release are given such a hands on approach to the film and special features to go with that to make most genre fans happy. Just this year, we’ve seen great releases of Mad Max, Class Of 1984, and countless others, and before the year is over, we’ll be getting new editions of The People Under The Stairs and The Sentinel. Out today, in a brand new Bluray release, is Neil Marshall’s 2002 werewolf action film debut, Dog Soldiers, a film that is not only worth picking up just for the film itself, but for a brand new set of special features that really further illustrates how much time and effort Sf spends giving fans what they want. »
