Danny Boyle Confirms Porno Will Be Next Film


Oscar winning Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle has confirmed that a Trainspotting sequel is in the works, with all four main characters interested in returning.

Ewan McGregor, Ewen Brenner, Robert Carlyle and Jonny Lee Miller are all keen to reprise their roles to adapt Irvine Welsh’s sequel novel. However, Boyle stopped short of committing 100% by adding that schedules could get in the way. However, John Hodges has already penned a script so this is definitely more than just speculation.

Ten years on from Trainspotting, Simon ‘Sick Boy’ Williamson is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity, which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realise his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton and a motley crew that includes the city’s favourite ex-aerated-water-salesman, ‘Juice’ Terry Lawson.

In the world of Porno, however, nothing is straightforward, as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address, concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other.

Danny Boyle is currently busy doing the festival circuit with his much lauded Steve Jobs biopic. The film, starring Michael Fassbender, is being tipped for Oscars already and could be Boyle’s next big critical hit. Sequels are typically box office fodder so Boyle will need to work hard to win over the critics, though his fans have been waiting twenty years so the film’s success is a sure thing.
