Well, cross your fingers, it looks like there might be a sequel to Trainspotting after all. Scotsman.com reported that Danny Boyle has confirmed that "all the actors" from the original cast (Well, not Tommy obviously, but I don't want to spoil it for the uninitiated) will be returning for a film version of Irvine Welsh's Porno (the follow-up to his 1993 novel Trainspotting). Rumblings of a sequel have been going on for years, but considering the relationship between Ewan McGregor and Boyle since their falling out over the casting for The Beach, it seemed that a sequel was not to be.

The mood changed from far-out idea to a real possibility when Boyle became more vocal about the likelihood of a sequel, albeit with a few conditions of his own. But it looked like we were back to square one when Chris had the news that McGregor had supposedly put the brakes on the whole idea. McGregor was attributed with the quote, "They can go ahead and do it if they want, but it will be without me on board." So far, McGregor has been unavailable for comment on Boyle's most recent claim, but if it all works out and McGregor does reprise his role, this could be the Martin and Lewis reunion for this generation -- not to mention we'll get to see a film we've been wanting for a very long time.
