Trainspotting Sequel Title

Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionare) is currently on the press tour for his upcoming bio film, Steve Jobs.

Both films have been kicking around for a long time now. Now Boyle has mentioned the possible Transpotting sequel title.

Hell's Club mash-up

There’s a good chance no one has ever thought that they’d like to see a movie that intersects the worlds of films such as Star Wars, Scarface, John Wick, Collateral, Terminator, Trainspotting, Saturday Night Fever and more. But that’s exactly what Antonio Maria Da Silva has done with a wholly strange, mesmerizing and fantastic cleverly edited short compiled by using clips from all these movies.

We’ve featured supercuts and trailer remixes before, but this Hell’s Club mash-up is something completely different. We don’t want to give anything away, but Da Silva sets up the video by saying, “There is a place or fictional characters meet. Outside of time, outside of all logic, this place is known as Hell’s Club. Just watch it and be mesmerized. 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 »

Ever since he owned the screen in Trainspotting, Robert Carlyle has been a favorite actor for a lot of us. But matching a role and performance like the psychopathic Francis Begbie is difficult, so it’s no surprise to hear that the actor would jump at the chance to revisit it. While that still seems like a distant possibility, Carlyle is talking it up anyway. In addition, he is featured in a five-minute commercial for Johnnie Walker whiskey, and his one-take recitation of the brand’s history is definitely worth a look. Read More »
