A Trainspotting sequel anyone?
Ewan McGregor fans rejoice, the Scottish star has revealed he wouldn't say no to a sequel to Danny Boyle's directorial cult classic Trainspotting. Interesting.
McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Kelly Macdonald and Kevin McKidd starred in the 1996 adaptation of an Irvine Welsh novel, which told the story of a group of heroin addicts in an economically depressed area of Edinburgh in the late 1980s. The film was voted the Best Scottish Film of All Time back in 2004 apparently.
Welsh released a follow-up novel called Porno in 2002 and talk of a sequel started. But Ewan wasn't all that eager at the time, saying he thought it would be "a terrible shame". Now he's changed his tune ever so slightly.
"I know in the past I always said I wouldn't do anything that would damage the reputation of the movie Trainspotting because I wouldn't want to do a poor sequel, but at the same time, I would always read it if I was sent it", he told The Daily Record. "I was never in the position where they've asked me to do it."
We'll keep you posted on that one!
