Danny Boyle has said that he is hoping to start filming the sequel to his hit movie Trainspotting in 2016.
The 56-year-old director said if scriptwriter John Hodge, who wrote Trainspotting, could produce a decent script, he would be able to get the member of the original cast involved, including Ewan McGregor, Sky News reported.
Boyle told cinema site The Playlist that the movie will be based on Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh's own sequel, Porno.
The original film follows a group of heroin addicts in an economically depressed area of Edinburgh in the late 1980s and their passage through life.
In the film, McGregor played Mark Rents Renton, Ewen Bremner was Daniel Spud Murphy, Robert Carlyle appeared as Francis Franco Begbie and Welsh also made an appearance, playing Mikey Forrester.
