The sequel of the movie has been long awaited and has finally been announced by the director. The sequel would follow by at least 20 years the ground breaking 1996 Miramax release of Channel 4's Trainspotting. The movie had shown the misadventures of drug addicts in Edinburgh. The original was written by John Hodge which was based on Irvine Welsh’s novel.
Boyle has also stated that the script by Hodge for the new movie is just amazing. He explained that the actors all want to do it. Hodge has written the sequel script based on Welsh’s Porno.
Boyle told Deadline that "Hodge’s script for what they’re calling Trainspotting 2 is terrific, that the actors all want to do it and reiterated that it will be the director’s next film depending on the actors’ U.S. TV schedules."
This was the author’s own sequel to his original Trainspotting novel. Apart from this Hodge has also written the screenplay for Boyle-directed movies. These include Life Less Ordinary, Trance and The Beach.
