Filmmaker Danny Boyle is hoping to release the Trainspotting sequel,Porno,in 2016 to mark the 20th anniversary of the first film.
Trainspotting was based on a novel by Irvine Welsh and the Slumdog Millionaire director’s new film would loosely adapt his follow-up novel,Porno,reported Contactmusic.
“This has been a long time coming. The ideal time would be Porno in 2016 because it was 1996 when Trainspotting came out. 20 years… It’s like,wow,where did that go?,” he said.
The 56-year-old director said he is still waiting for the right script from his long-time collaborator John Hodge,who wrote several of Boyle’s biggest films including Trainspotting and the upcoming heist thriller,Trance.
“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 wanna 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 to make sure you don’t disappoint people,” he said.
