It is of course based on the sequel book that the author wrote. Its title is the name of adult material shortened down to its nickname which begins with a "P" and is 5 letter long. They were interviewing the guy who did the movie who was promoting his latest flick "28 days later" and is in the process of trying to get started with it. He is going to have the entire cast return, Ewan and all. In which if you folks did not know this director discovered Ewan McGregor. It takes place 10 years later after Trainspotting and entails them with the production of things that the title tells of.

Thanx for the heads up :). I knew they were thinking about it for some time, it was just a matter of assembling the original cast :). This is one movie I'm looking forward to :).

PENDO!

To clarify, he hasn't got everybody signed on just yet, but those are his intentions. It is just in the real early stages. Hopefully there won't be any compromises.

Yea what it sounds like in that article because of those events it ultimately led to him getting the role in EPS 1. Also when I heard that interview with Boyle on the radio. He sounded a little shaky and hesitant when the "getting the original cast to come back" question was asked. He didn't sound very confident in his reply.

yeah, MacGregor's a proud guy, and I don;t think he appreciated being screwed by the director who he sort of, put on the map.

Does anyone have any more info, or a link to a web site with info on this? Was it just in some interview? I'm getting all worked up over it- and it might not even be true.

Don't have a site yet but I did hear it from Boyle's mouth.


Oh never mind hear you go.
Doesn't sound promising for Ewan.

<A name=kinostart a>Trainspotting - Sequel !?
[28.04.2003] IMDb.com (http://us.imdb.com/PeopleNews/2003/20030425.html) meldet...
Actor Ewan McGregor is now "not keen" on reprising the drug addict role of Renton in a Trainspotting sequel. The Scottish hunk expressed an interest last year in reprising his break- through role in a big screen adaptation of author Irvine Welsh's follow-up novel Porno - although he stressed a good script would be essential if he were to agree to the film. Now, McGregor - who is now a major Hollywood player - has concluded that he is reluctant to commit to the project, which would also see Trainspotting stars Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner return. The Star Wars actor says, "If it wasn't as good, people would remember a poor sequel instead of a great original. I wouldn't touch it just in case it didn't work out."

Other than the original cast's lack of ageing, the sequel to 1996 runaway hit Trainspotting is taking shape, said director Danny Boyle at the Sundance Film Festival.
In Park City for the North American debut of UK box-office sensation 28 Days Later (http://www.moviefans.de/a-z/0-9/28-days-later/index.html), the director said the sequel, based on the novel, Porno, by Trainspotting novelist Irvine Welsh, reunites the characters ten years later. He added that it was therefore essential that the film reunite the original cast members, which include Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle and Jonny Lee Miller.
"None of them look any different," he said. "I need them to look like they’ve burned themselves out, but they have all been using face creme and Vitamin E lotion."
Hot off the heels of his success with 28 Days Later, Boyle is working with his regular collaborator John Hodge, who wrote Shallow Grave, A Life Less Ordinary and adapted Trainspotting.
But Boyle's next project to go is expected to be Millions, a comedy set in the near future when the UK makes the transition from Sterling to the Euro. The project is based at London’s Mission Pictures, with a screenplay by 24 Hour Party People screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce. [...]

Ewan McGregor [...] let slip that his attitude towards a reunion with Begbie has significantly shifted. "At first, I was quite sceptical about it. Quite some time ago I was asked if I wanted to play Renton again and I said no - it's a funny thing to go back. I've never done it before - except for the Star Wars character - and I thought it was best left. What if you made a sequel to Trainspotting and it wasn't good? It would be a terrible shame."
But - we're more than slightly thrilled to say - McGregor completed a neat turnaround when he read writer Irvine Welsh's follow-up book, Porno. "But then I read the book and went, "Ah, it's fantastic!" 'Cause it was so nice to find what they're all up to, you know. Sick boy and wee Spud and Begbie - ******' hell... so we'll see. The only thing to say is that if the script is good enough you'd go for it. I've lost that immediate negative feeling I won't do it." [...]

Star Wars hunk Ewan McGregor has patched up his differences with director Danny Boyle - as Boyle seeks to reunite the stars of cult movie Trainspotting for a sequel. Author Irvine Welsh published Porno this year, a novel set 10 years after the original drama which features many of the same characters. Boyle, who directed the first flick, is a big fan of the book and wants to produce a script. In fact, he's already started meeting the stars of the 1996 movie, including McGregor, with whom he fell out a couple of years ago when he failed to cast him as the lead in The Beach, preferring instead Leonardo DiCaprio. He says, "I saw Ewan for the first time in five years a few days ago. I hadn't seen him in such a long time. It was great fun. There is an opportunity to do Porno, but it would be difficult because he's got such a varied career - would he go back and play a character he's already played? But he's halfway through the book and was laughing because (his character) Renton doesn't appear until halfway through. He's going to finish the novel first and take it from there. I finished it and think it's amazing." However, Boyle believes original stars McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner will team up for the film if he can produce a great script. He reasons, "Everyone says it's about getting the actors back again, but I think more importantly, it's about whether we can do justice to the characters. They have become mythical figures since Trainspotting came out."

[25.10.2002] Bei AICN (http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=13639) gibt es Infos von einer Q&A-Session...
[...] It is not the end of the Trainspotting team! John Hodge’s had some input in the development into 28 DAYS LATER (http://www.moviefans.de/a-z/0-9/28-days-later/index.html) & is currently looking at Porno (book by Irvin Welsh) (http://www.moviefans.de/a-z/t/trainspotting/#literatur) To see if it can be adapted into ‘Trainspotting 2’. [...] they would need six certain actors to take a considerable paycut.

UK Yahoo (http://uk.movies.yahoo.com/021017/242/dc09j.html) got to ask Director Danny Boyle the other day about Irvine Welsh's follow-up to his acclaimed novel "Trainspotting": "I've just finished reading it, funnily enough, and I really enjoyed it. I found it very difficult to start with, because I am in such awe of the original book, which I think is a modern Ulysses. I think the idea of taking the characters ten years on is brilliant, but one of the problems at the moment is that the actors - Ewan and Ewen, Bobby, and Jonny - don't look ten years older". Would he direct it? "It's a fantastic idea. I don't know whether it will happen or not because of the logistical problems that would be involved. I'd love to go back to it, I think the idea of a ten-year gap is a great idea".

[25.08.2001] Bei Coming Soon! (http://www.comingsoon.net/cgi-bin/archive/fullnews.cgi?newsid998665967,67199,) gibt es ein Kommentar zu deren "Trainspotting 2"-Meldung...
Actually, I believe your story on Trainspotting is a mis-quote -- in true ABC fashion. In this interview at a recent book signing, Irvine Welsh states that he is writing another BOOK using the characters from Trainspotting, and that it's difficult to write a book these days without someone turning it into a movie.

[24.08.2001] DH (http://www.darkhorizons.com/) berichtet über "Trainspotting 2"...
"Trainspotting" author Irvine Welsh was talking at the Edinburgh Book Festival about the novel that he's in the middle of writing entitled "Porno" and confirmed its a follow-up to that famous novel of Scottish drug addicts of his - "Trainspotting". Now The Sun confirms that Film Four already is interested in nabbing the movie rights even though the book is a long way from completion. The plot of "Porno" is set a decade later and will be based mostly in Leith, Edinburgh where most of the first book/movie was set. Sick Boy has now moved back to Edinburgh to become a movie director and to make porn movies, and Spud has been conned into writing a book on the local area. No word on the involvement of Ewan McGregor or Robert Carlyle's characters of Renton or Begbie though Walsh did indicate the pair would meet up
