Trainspotting 2 Exclusive: Danny Boyle Talks Sequel Plot

by at . Comments

For years, people have been asking: Will there be a Trainspotting sequel? And now we have our official answer!

Danny Boyle met us to talk about his latest thriller, teased in the Trance trailer, and given the rumors that a sequel to his 1996 smash hit Trainspotting is in the works, he gave us some firm details about why he seeks to return to the world he created and what fans of the cult smash can expect.

By the time audiences get to see Trainspotting 2, it will have been two decades since the first shocked the world. “That’s why we go back,” Boyle admitted. “That would be the premise of the film is that we take all the same actors playing the same parts and examine what has happened to them in 20 years.”

Trainspotting put Boyle and its star, Ewan McGregor, on the cinematic map in its story about life rooted in the drug scene of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. It featured one of the more iconic scenes in recent film history. If you haven't seen it, we won’t spoil it, other than it features McGregor and a toilet. Enough said!
