Ewan McGregor 'up for' Trainspotting sequel
From The Guardian
Trainspotting star keen to take part in Danny Boyle's planned film based loosely on Irvine Welsh's book
Ewan McGregor has confirmed his willingness to star in Danny Boyle's planned sequel to the cult 1996 film Trainspotting.
Speaking at a Q&A session following a reunion screening of Trainspotting in London, McGregor said it would be an "extraordinary experience" to reprise the role of Mark Renton, which made his name. Boyle revealed in March that he is planning a sequel that could find its way to the big screen for 2016, the 20th anniversary of the cult film about Edinburgh drug addicts. It will be based loosely on the book Porno by Irvine Welsh, in which the Trainspotting author imagined Renton, Sickboy, Begbie and Spud becoming embroiled in a scheme to raise cash by making a pornographic movie many years after the events of the earlier book.
