Director Danny Boyle has confirmed he’ll follow “Steve Jobs” with a sequel to “Trainspotting,” targeted for release next year in time for the original film’s 20th anniversary.
An adaptation of Irvine Welsh’s debut novel, the 1996 black comedy-drama follows a group of heroin addicts — Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Ewen Bremner and Jonny Lee Miller, among them — in an economically depressed section of Edinburgh in the late 1980s. Boyle’s first hit, “Trainspotting” is frequently considered among the best British films of all time.
“All the four main actors want to come back and do it,” Boyle said at the Telluride Film Festival, where he screened “Steve Jobs.” “Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.”
Miller stars on CBS’s modern Sherlock Holmes drama “Elementary,” while Carlyle appears on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.”
Boyle’s frequent collaborator, “Trainspotting” screenwriter John Hodge, wrote the script the script for the sequel based on Welsh’s own follow-up, 2002’s “Porno.”
