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".

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
