It's been almost 20 years since Danny Boyle's adaptation of Irvine Welsh's novel "Trainspotting", hit the big-screen and took audiences by storm. Now, after all this time, it looks like the story will be continuing and a "Trainspotting 2" may be on the horizon.

Boyle stated in a recent interview that if John Hodge, who wrote the screenplay for the first film, was able to "produce a decent enough script", the plan was always to make a sequel.

He went on to say that the film will be a very loose adaptation of "Porno", Welsh's sequel to "Trainspotting". In "Porno", many of the "Trainspotting" characters reunite 10 years after the events of the first novel, who fittingly work in the pornography industry.

On the excitement as well as challenges Boyle will be face with the second film, he states, "the reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to make sure you don’t disappoint people."

Boyle is confident Ewan McGregor and the original cast will return as long as "the parts are good so they don’t feel like they are letting anyone down."

Pushing for a 2016 release date, Boyle wants the sequel to commemorate the 20th anniversary of "Trainspotting".

    I can see him retiring Wolverine after W3 but as stated - HJ is still RIPPED. He does some serious workouts to play Logan and has the body to prove it. If they cast someone younger to play him after W3 then they had better search long and hard because he is one tough act to follow as Logan!

    okay, i took the bait of the Teaser for the new Bond movie, and I am hooked. Bond seems to have a secret link to Spectre, This will be interesting. I love the way the new recycling of Bond stories have developed from the first Craig adaptation and reinventing of the role. Guess I am onboard to continue to be a person that has never missed a Bond movie. From when I first saw Dr. No and From Russia With Love on a double feature in the 60's as a teenager I have been hooked and still am.
