Speaking of folks with Irish parents, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle has made some of the most respected and praised movies in recent years, including Slumdog Millionaire and, more recently, Steve Jobs. But the Scottish-born Boyle introduced himself to the world with a wild little independent flick called Trainspotting. Well, published reports now suggest that a Trainspotting sequel is in the works, just in time for the original’s 20th anniversary.

Speaking to the BBC at the recent London premiere of Steve Jobs, Boyle said, “We’re going up to Scotland next week very early and we’re going to do a week’s workshop up in Edinburgh working on the script.”

Boyle added that the original actors are all interested in appearing in the follow-up, and simply have to work to rearrange their schedules to make it happen.

Boyle added: “We’re filming in May and June of [2016].”
