Danny Boyle has confirmed plans for a Trainspotting sequel.

He hopes that the adaptation of Irvine Welsh's follow-up novel Porno will see the return of the original cast including Ewan McGregor.

The filmmaker plans to begin making the film in 2016. John Hodge, who wrote the screenplays for Boyle's Trance, Trainspotting, Shallow Grave and A Life Less Ordinary, is currently working on the script.

"This has been a long time coming," Boyle told The Playlist.

"There's always been this long-term plan for Trainspotting 2, if John can produce a decent enough script, I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back. I think they'll wanna know that the parts are good so they don't feel like they are letting anyone down."
