Danny Boyle has hinted that a sequel to Trainspotting is likely to go ahead.
The British filmmaker received critical acclaim back in 1996 when he adapted the Irvine Welsh novel for the big screen in a movie that starred Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle.
And there has been speculation for some time that Boyle would return to the product and he has now dropped the strongest hint yet that the movie will go ahead.
Speaking to Cinematical the filmmaker said: "It will happen, I think. I mean, we'll approach them all again about it, but it will depend on what place they're all at.
“We have a very strong idea that it would be a wonderful thing to do again when they have aged clearly into a mid-life kind of crisis.
“They're not quite there yet, I don't think."
And Boyle revealed that the movie would follow, to a certain extent, Irvine’s second novel Porno.
"The book Porno is not a great book in the way that the original novel is genuinely a masterpiece - as a piece of writing. But we have been doing some work on it, and it's got potential, for sure. And when the moment's right, I think we will approach it."
Boyle returns to the director’s chair in the new year with his new movie 127 Hours, which is already surrounded in award talk.
127 Hours is released 7th January.
