Danny Boyle hints at "Trainspotting" sequel

"Trainspotting" could be getting a sequel from original filmmaker Danny Boyle.

The director hinted at the possibility in a recent interview with Deadline, revealing that four stars are interested in coming back.

The 1996 comedy-crime drama starred Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Robert Carlyle and Ewen Bremner in lead roles. Now according to Boyle, he's mulling a follow-up.

"All the four main actors want to come back and do it, and so now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together, which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series," Boyle said.

"Trainspotting" centered on a group of heroin addicts in a late 1980s economically depressed area of Edinburgh. It also featured Kevin McKidd and Kelly Macdonald.

Boyle's other films include "A Life Less Ordinary," "28 Days Later," "Slumdog Millionaire" and the new "Steve Jobs" movie.

Meanwhile, the original stars of the film have also been keeping busy. Miller currently stars in the CBS show, "Elementary," while McGregor has several films coming up. Carlyle stars in ABC's "Once Upon a Time," and Bremmer appears in the British drama "Banished."
