"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "There’s always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2', if John 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 want to know that the parts are good so they don’t feel like they are letting anyone down. 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 »

Well, it won’t make it in theaters in time for its twentieth anniversary, but the long awaited sequel to “Trainspotting” is coming, and the picture has found a studio home. Screen Daily reports that Sony TriStar have snapped up the worldwide rights to the untitled sequel. Thus far, details are being kept under wraps about what the movie will be about, but Danny Boyle has shared the followup won’t simply be an adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s “Porno,” as many expected. “It’s not very directly from the book anymore, and it certainly won’t be called ‘Porno.’ It will be called 'T2' if we can get the rights [alluding to James Cameron’s 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day'],” he told The Daily Beast in September. A few days later, the director told Rolling Stone, "People think the first film was about drugs; it's not. It's about friendship. John Hodge [the film's screenwriter], has suggested a very peculiar alternate title »

It has been confirmed that Trainspotting 2 will shoot next year for a release in 2017, 21 years after the original movie. Tristar Pictures have secured the worldwide rights to the picture and Danny Boyle will return to direct from a screenplay by John Hodge, based on the novel ‘Porno’ by Irvine Welsh.
“It’s been 20 years since we met these characters and John Hodge’s screenplay brilliantly explores what’s happened to them—and to us—in the intervening years,” said Boyle. “We are grateful to Tom and Hannah for their support and we can’t wait to get going.”
“‘Trainspotting’ was a seminal movie for me, »

Transpotting 2 is now officially official - it'll shoot next year, for release in 2017.
The mooted sequel to Trainspotting is now official - even if it's going to arrive a year later than intended.
Director Danny Boyle had been talking about getting Trainspotting 2 into cinemas in 2016, in line with the 20th anniversary of the original film. Yet it's now been confirmed that the film - which will be based on Irvine Welsh's book, Porno - is now set to land in cinemas in 2017.
John Hodge is returning to pen the screenplay for the new movie, and production is set to commence in April. That allows the film to work around the schedule of Johnny Lee Miller in particular, whose schedule is the least flexible given his commitments to making the hit TV show Elementary.
Danny Boyle's breakout film Trainspotting (1996), based on Irvine Welsh's novel about a coterie of drug-loving wankers, is a revered cult classic—take the best orgasm you've ever had, multiply it by a thousand, and you're still nowhere near it—and now a sequel is on the way. The original gave us the indelible image of Ewan McGregor diving into a squalid toilet on a heroin high and jump-started the careers of both Boyle and McGregor. It looks like McGregor will dive back in: Deadline reports that, along with Boyle (who had previously promised us that the sequel will be worth the wait) and screenwriter John Hodge, the principal cast of McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle will return for more drug-addled adventures in the long-gestating sequel, based on Welsh's Porno. Plans for the film fell apart (like the lives of the film's characters, you might »

The original principal cast are all confirmed to return, including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle. Danny Boyle will once again direct, with John Hodge returning to write the screenplay.
“It’s been 20 years since we met these characters and John Hodge’s screenplay brilliantly explores what’s happened to them—and to us—in the intervening years,” states Boyle via The Hollywood Reporter. “We are grateful to Tom Rothman and Hannah Minghella for their support and we can’t wait to get going.”’
“Like almost everyone my age, I had the ‘Choose Life’ poster on my university dorm room wall,” adds Minghella. “I have wanted to work with Danny ever since, so the opportunity to collaborate on the sequel is truly a dream come true. »

Danny Boyle recently revealed that his next project would be the sequel to Trainspotting, and now actor Robert Carlyle, who portrayed the ruthless Begbie in the 1996 cult classic, has revealed some enthusiastic details about the upcoming film. "You're going to think, 'Of course he's going to say this,' but honestly, it's one of the best scripts I've fucking read," Carlyle told NME of the sequel. "I mean, ever. What [screenwriter] John Hodge has done is just so clever."
Hodge previously penned the script for Trainspotting. The follow-up is based on »
Danny Boyle‘s next movie will be a return to the UK after current release Steve Jobs, which is enjoying its second weekend at the UK box-office. That return will be Trainspotting 2, which starts production next year. One of the actors returning for the movie is Robert Carlyle who has been heaping praise on screenwriter John Hodge‘s script.
He spoke with the NME.
“Yeah, we’ve already had a read-through of the script, we did that in the springtime. You’re going to think, ‘Of course he’s going to say this,’ but honestly, it’s one of the best scripts I’ve f**king read. I mean, ever. What John Hodge has done is just so clever.”
Hodge wrote the original 1996 screenplay, adapting from Irvine Welsh’s original novel. The new film will be loosely based on Welsh’s Porno. Carlyle, who plays Francis Begbie, elaborated on the story, »

“You’re going to think, ‘Of course he’s going to say this,’ but honestly, it’s one of the best scripts I’ve f—ing read. I mean, ever,” Carlyle, who played Begbie in the original “Trainspotting,” said to NME in a recent interview.
“Trainspotting” director Danny Boyle will helm the sequel, and writer John Hodge returned to pen the script, which is said to be loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s “Trainspotting” follow-up novel “Porno.” In fact, the entire main cast of the original is expected to return, including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, and Ewan Bremner.
“Obviously these four characters are 20 years older now and I’ve never seen a sequel that takes place 20 years after the original, so I think that gives it a certain unique quality,” Carlyle noted. “And the »

TBS has put in development Hype, a gritty half-hour comedy from Irvine Welsh, author of the novel Trainspotting, which was adapted into Danny Boyle’s 1996 cult movie. Welsh will write and executive produce the project, set in the world of the Miami art scene. Also executive producing are Trevor Engelson of Underground and Doug Banker of Five All In The Fifth Entertainment, who came up with the basic idea and pitched it to Welsh. A number of novels by Welsh have been… »
Kill Your Friends bullishly sets out its stall in the opening monologue - it's an uncompromising study of ambition in an industry that's purely motivated by profit, and if you're not buying what it's selling, you can eff right off. And then, just for good measure, Nicholas Hoult pisses on an unconscious James Corden.
The year is 1997, Steven Stelfox (Hoult) is a rising star in the world of A&R and the obvious candidate to succeed David Schneider (Dustin Demri-Burns), the dead manager walking at his label, Unigram. Like most of his class of entitled so-and-so's in the industry, Steven has little knowledge and even less interest in actual music, much to the frustration of his dedicated secretary Rebecca (Georgia King).
Steven just happens to have »
"It's not the same film, but it can't be, and we wouldn't want it to be," said Boyle. "And the actors all responded to it as I thought they would."
"The actors were very fearful about a sequel as well," Boyle continued. "Actors are a great barometer of whether something is worthwhile or not.
"Their bullshit filter is very, very strong, because they're going to be the ones out there trying to make a script look truthful and believable. »
Now that Steve Jobs is finished and beginning its worldwide roll-out, director Danny Boyle's next project will be a sequel. He's set to direct Trainspotting 2, which will be based on Irvine Welsh's book, Porno. And after that? It may well be another sequel.
Boyle sat out the sequel to his hit zombie-ish movie 28 Days Later, with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo taking over for 28 Weeks Later. Boyle served as executive producer on that one, and it'd been assumed that he'd serve a similar role on the long-mooted 28 Months Later.
But might he actually direct it?
"I've got no problem [with that]", he told IndieWire. "It’s the usual thing: is it's not about whether people think it's a good idea that you're directing. It’s whether you respond to the script or not. »
Talk to most any expert on pop-zombie culture and he or she will mention 28 Days Later..., Danny Boyle's 2002 contribution to the horror subgenre that helped renew interest in the idea of society crumbling under the threat of shambling (or this case, infected and sprinting) corpses. The missing link between the Romero-era Dead films and The Walking Dead — compare Cillian Murphy's awakening into a chaotic world to the beginning of the latter's pilot episode — it's a seminal zombie-apocalypse work. And as the director told Rolling Stone during an extensive »
