Writer John Hodge was commended by the lead actor for the upcoming “Trainspotting 2” film, Robert Carlyle. Carlyle attested that the movie’s script was the best he has ever read throughout his career.
The movie “Trainspotting,” a film rendition of author Irvine Welsh’s self-named title, first graced the screens last 1996, reported Entertainment Weekly. The movie starred by Ewan McGregor who played Renton, Johnny Lee Miller who played Sick Boy, Ewan Bremner who played spud and Robert Carlyle who played the lead character. Roughly 20 years after the first film, director Danny Boyle will bring the cast back up again to complete “Trainspotting 2,” a movie rendition of Irvine Welsh’s “Porno” novel.
During an interview, Carlyle noted on “Trainspotting 2”, “I’ve never seen a sequel that takes place 20 years after the original, so I think that gives it a certain unique quality. And the way John Hodge has put this thing down, obviously with the help of Danny Boyle, is to make it about how the characters’ lives have moved on… or have they? Without giving anything away, maybe some of them haven’t really moved on. That’s what the audience is going to have to go through with them.”
Carlyle also relayed his appreciation for the film’s script. He stated, “You’re going to think, ‘Of course he’s going to say this,’ but honestly, it’s one of the best scripts I’ve f—ing read. I mean, ever,” reported Variety. Not only did Carlyle commend the movie’s writer, he also acknowledged the directing talent of Boyle which will lead the second franchise to success in the near future.
The film will start filming next year with the first installment’s cast reprising their respective roles. Director Danny Boyle will also reprise his role as director for “Trainspotting 2.” While the director was promoting his latest film “Steve Jobs,” he explained that the movie will embody the first film’s influence and that it won’t disappoint the audience when it releases.
