It’s been nearly 20 years since the original film starring Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle was released. Director Danny Boyle has said he plans to begin shooting the long awaited Trainspotting sequel next summer. If all goes to plan Boyle hopes that the film will then hit cinemas later in 2016, in time for the original film’s 20th anniversary. Boyle said that the shoot was planned for “May/June” 2016, but added that it all depends on Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle’s shooting schedules.–CM

Both actors are currently tied up with television commitments in the US, with Carlyle starring in ‘Once Upon A Time’ and Miller in ‘Elementary’.

“They only get this little window off, so either you wait for the contract to run down, which could be as late as three years, or you kind of try and do it in this window,” Boyle said. “But all four lads [McGregor, Miller, Carlyle and Ewen Bremner] are back in.”
