Ewan McGregor tells Details the Trainspotting sequel "might happen" and doesn't speak to highly of Star Wars crazies saying: I don't have any experience with them. I've never been to one of the conventions. The people I meet are the f**kers who want me to sign Star Wars photos so they can sell them on the Internet or the people at premieres who are crushing children against barriers to get me to sign their f**king picture of Obi-Wan Kenobi. They're not fans -- they're parasitical lowlifes and f**king wankers. The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller have signed on to write The Lego Movie 2, though no word on whether they'll return to direct the sequel which is set for a May 25, 2018 release date.
