Good news for Trainspotting fans – Danny Boyle has confirmed the sequel will happen – once its four lead actors can co-ordinate schedules.

The director revealed back in March 2013 that he was working on ‘Trainspotting 2’ – originally titled ‘Porno’ by novelist Irvine Welsh.

He also excitingly confirmed that John Hodge, Trainspotting’s original screenwriter, would be working on the script…


Ewan McGregor then got hearts racing when he announced in June that he “would be up for” starring in it.

Now Boyle has confirmed to Deadline that the sequel will happen and is simply a matter of timing…

“All the four main actors want to come back and do it. Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.”

We. Cannot. Wait.
