Ewan McGregor won’t go near trainspotting 2

Film Title:  HAYWIREEwan McGregor has said no to another Trainspotting sequel becuase he’s not a fan of the book.

Irvine Welsh’s Porno is a sequel to Trainspotting and follows the film’s main characters lives 13 years later. There has been much speculation that Danny Boyle and his cast would return for a sequel.

However, McGregor has stated that he won’t reprise his role as junkie Renton as he doesn’t want to tarnish the original’s reputation.

He told Moviefone, “I didn’t think the book was very good. The novel of Trainspotting was quite fantastic, it was beautiful, quite moving and disturbing writing, and then I find that the sequel, the book that Irvine Welsh wrote didn’t move me as much. He’d written a good sequel to the film as opposed to a sequel to his book.

“I wouldn’t want to damage Trainspotting’s reputation because it was an amazing film and a very important film of its time. I wouldn’t want to leave people remembering a poor sequel.”
