London Olympics opening ceremony director to make Porno movie

Danny Boyle is hoping to release a sequel to Trainspotting, his 1996 hit black comedy, in 2016.

The man behind the London Olympics opening ceremony has revealed that the long-rumoured follow-up - called Porno - may finally hit screens 20 years after the original film starring Ewan McGregor was released.

Speaking to Indiewire.com, Boyle said: "This has been a long time coming. The ideal time would be Porno in 2016 because it was 1996 when Trainspotting came out. 20 years... It's like, wow, where did that go?"

Trainspotting was based on a novel by Irvine Welsh about a group of heroin addicts and the new film would "loosely" adapt Welsh's follow-up novel, Porno.

However, the director is still waiting on the right script from his long-time collaborator John Hodge, who wrote several of Boyle's biggest films including Trainspotting and the upcoming heist thriller, Trance.

He added: "There's always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2.

"If John can produce a decent enough script, I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. I think they'll wanna know that the parts are good so they don't feel like they are letting anyone down.

"The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to make sure you don't disappoint people."
