Irvine Welsh Confirms Trainspotting 2 Film Sequel in the Works


Earlier this week The Sunday Times Magazine and FILTH (review) Author; Irvine Welsh held a Q&A that I was lucky enough to be part off (right place, right time). During the conversation, Welsh not only confirmed that a Trainspotting sequel was in the works, but also verified that the original films screenwriter John Hodge and Director Danny Boyle were on-board and currently adapting the Welsh’s follow up novel Porno. When asked if the original cast of actors would return, Welsh teased that everyone involved, wants the original Trainspotting (1996) cast including; Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle all back for the follow-up.

Some 16 years have past since Danny Boyle and Irvine Welsh brought Renton, Spud, Sickboy and Begbe to the silver screen. With that said, does the prospect of another round of debauchery in the capital with Edinburgh’s finest, still tickle your fancy?

  1. Mark Walker says:

    As Trainspotting is one of my favourite films, I’m very much eager for this to happen. I love Irvine Welsh’s stuff anyway and his follow up novel was absolutely brilliant. Ultimately, though, I’d be most eager to see Robert Carlyle reprise Begbie.

      Absolutely! It was the best bit of news Id heard last week and the prospect is absolutely mouth watering. Original filmmaker, original scribes and original cast!! I still haven’t caught up on Porno (Trainspotting 2) yet, but this has heightened my appetite to read it soon. Cheers Mark

    Excellent news, though Kevin McKidd won’t be back for Porno going by what happened to his character in Trainspotting! Haha

    I am really interested in discovering who they will cast as Juice Terry!

    • Allan Brown says:

      Haha, Very true, how could I forget. I have yet to read Porno so completely in the dark as to its narrative and who Juice Terry is. Think its only fair to kick it off this week seeing as the book has sat on my self untouched for the best part of a year.
