Yes we know, the last thing we need is a Trainspotting franchise or the like, but bear with us here, because you may actually like the sound of this.

The much-anticipated sequel, T2, premieres in cinemas this Friday, as we catch up with Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie twenty years after the original flick debuted to critical acclaim. Expectations are high no doubt but we can safely tell you that fans will not be let down with Danny Boyle's latest offering. Check out our review here.

One of the standout performances in the original film was Robert Carlyle's Francis Begbie, and the same goes for the sequel, as the menacing yet unintentionally hilarious character steals scenes left, right and centre,

Speaking at the movie's world premiere in Edinburgh last night, Carlyle told The Mirror, "It's been 20 years coming. It's been a long time coming. We always felt that we would do it, but as the years went by, you thought, 'Is this ever really going to happen?'

"Danny [Boyle, the director] was always determined we were going to be 20 years older before he was going to shoot it."

T2 also gives viewers a chance to see another side of Begbie, of which Carlyle said; "There is something quite emotional about that. He's capable of feeling something more just rage, so I am pleased that that element of Begbie has been shown.

"And maybe that sets up another film in fact because Irvine Welsh has written The Blade Artist."

The book follows Begbie living a reformed life in the US, which is difficult to imagine, but we reckon Carlyle could pull it off on screen.

Carlyle added, "We've been talking about that, I am up for doing it. So maybe we ain't seen the end of Begbie just yet."

While Welsh recently said "there's probably room for one more kind of Trainspotting-themed film".

Speaking about The Blade Artist, Welsh added, "It's a very, very filmic book, I think. It's almost like, bang, it has a three-act structure with not a lot of padding. And it's a lot more genre than some of the other Trainspotting books."

Yeah, not going to lie, we'd watch the sh*t out of a Francis Begbie movie.
