Trainspotting 2

Director Danny Boyle‘s latest film, the biopic Steve Jobs starring Michael Fassbender, is getting plenty of early praise after its debut at the Telluride Film Festival this past weekend. And with the film mostly in the can (Telluride hosted a “work-in-progress” screening) and moving towards some potential awards season love, Boyle is already thinking about his next film, and it’s one fans have been wanting for awhile.

Boyle is hoping that he can finally make Trainspotting 2 his next film, but there are certain elements that are out of his hands which may make that a little difficult. Find out more about the long-gestating sequel below! Read More »

For a long time now, Trainspotting director Danny Boyle has wanted to bring the cast of that film back together to make a new film, based on Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh‘s novel Porno. The idea is to pick up with the surviving Trainspotting characters ten years on, and Boyle has discussed his desire to make the film when the actors have aged appropriately. (Allowing that actors are perhaps better taken care of than their characters in the film, he needed a more significant interval than a single decade.)

Now, as Boyle’s new film Trance is about to be released, he says that he thinks he can get the Trainspotting cast back together to shoot the film in 2016. Read More »

Lot of small sequel rumblings and rumors are flying about, so let’s kick things off with one of the few bits that has a substantiated quote. Speaking to MovieMikes, Ernie Hudson says that Bill Murray is part of the holdup around Ghostbusters 3. “I know he really cares about his work,” the actor says, “which is probably why there hasn’t been another Ghostbusters as of yet. Dan and Harold are working on the script. If it happens we will see but Bill has been the hold up. His definition of good is a little bit different than everybody else’s.”

Fortunately, the balance of his work over the past few years (even factoring in stinkers like Garfield and Passion Play) Bill Murray’s definition of ‘good’ is pretty much…good. I’ll take a Bill Murray failure like City of Ember over Year One.

After the break, news and rumors on the long-rumored Trainspotting sequel, the Alien prequel(s) and Scream 4. Read More »
