Following the success of the cult movie Trainspotting, which has gone on to develop a huge following over the years, there has been a lot of talk about a potential Trainspotting sequel eventually taking place. Unfortunately, that looked very unlikely after director Danny Boyle and actor Ewan McGregor fell out after Danny promised Ewan the lead in The Beach, before getting Leonardo DiCaprio in for the film.
However, it now looks like the two men have patched things up and are now willing to work together once again, which has now led to suggestions that Trainspotting 2 is finally going to happen. According to the recent reports, Ewan McGregor has signed on to star in the Danny Boyle directed sequel and the two have even been working on the new script together.
A supposed insider was chatting to the British newspaper The Sun, when they said, "Thankfully, they finally patched things up and Ewan is now very fired up about making the sequel. Like the first movie, he is going to be the central character and will have the most work on the project. So he is very invested and is offering a lot of input on the script. It's full steam ahead."
As well as Ewan McGregor returning to reprise his role as Renton in the sequel, Trainspotting 2 will also see the return of Robert Carlyle as Begbie and Jonny Lee Miller as Sick Boy, with other original cast members also expected to return. Trainspotting 2 is expected to begin shooting in Scotland in January 2016, with an official release date to follow.
