Danny Boyle seemed as surprised as anyone that he could get the original actors from Trainspotting together for another film 20 years later. The director says he didn’t want it to be an ordinary sequel and they even changed the name for a time to “The Least Familiar” to make it sound different, but that didn’t work. Boyle says what was most important was for the guys to be equal with each having their own story. And they all get their due.
After the advance screening, director Danny Boyle and author Irvine Welsh participated in an Q&A moderated by Richard Roeper. Enjoy the video!
