Trainspotting sequel: Danny Boyle says yes, Ewan McGregor says no

There have been talks about a Trainspotting sequel ever since the original Trainspotting movie was released back in 1996. The success of the movie was huge, with a budget of $3.5 million which went on to gross over $72 million. Trainspotting also saw a sensational performance from Ewan McGregor but it appears that, while director Danny Boyle is very keen on making a Trainspotting sequel, Ewan is not so keen on the idea.
 
 
McGregor explained, “I don’t think I would, for several reasons. The first one is that I didn’t think the book was very good. The novel of Trainspotting was quite fantastic, it was beautiful, quite moving and disturbing writing, and then I find that the sequel it didn’t move me as much and I thought I don’t want to make the same story again. Also, I think just the idea of getting the cast together again 10 to 15 years later isn’t good enough, you need more than that.”
 
He added, “I wouldn’t want to damage Trainspotting’s reputation because it was an amazing film and a very important film of its time, a very important film for me and a very important film for British cinema. I wouldn’t want to leave people remembering a poor sequel rather than leaving its reputation where it sits at the moment, which is kind of a phenomenal film.”
 
 
Since then Ewan McGregor has claimed that he has yet to receive any sort of script for a Trainspotting sequel and cannot see a sequel ever being made to Trainspotting. He stated, "They've never sent me a script for it. I'd like to work with Danny again. I'm not sure I'd want to do a sequel to Trainspotting. That's not to say they couldn't write a great script, because they could do that. But I wouldn't hold your breath."
 
However, Trainspotting director Danny Boyle has constantly insisted that a Trainspotting sequel will be made. He explained, “It will happen, I think. I mean, we’ll approach them all again about it, but it will depend on what place they’re all at. We have a very strong idea that it would be a wonderful thing to re-approach, to do again, when they have aged clearly into a mid-life kind of crisis, basically. We have been doing some work on it, and it’s got potential for sure.”
 
Also, another of the stars of the movie, Robert Carlyle, who played Begbie in Trainspotting, has admitted that he would love to return for a sequel. He added, “Begbie is probably the only character in film that I would ever consider playing again because there’s more in there. There’s a lot more in there.”
 
So a Trainspotting sequel does seem to definitely be on the cards, with Danny Boyle insisting that they are making progress with a script and Robert Carlyle eager to be involved. But if they cannot persuade Ewan McGregor to get on board with a Trainspotting sequel, then surely the movie will never come to be. We hope it does but we will just have to wait and see.
