So, I've heard rumors that there's going to be a Trainspotting sequel...
[Boyle crosses his fingers.] It's not just teasing. It's a very, very serious prospect -- and a very serious attempt we're going to try to do something that relates to the fact that it'll be those same actors in those same character parts twenty years older. It'll be like a time lapse. They'll go from how they were when...all the actors were in their mid-twenties -- and not they're mid-forties. And we've all aged. One section of [the] audience will have all aged, but there's another section of audience who caught up with the film because it is regarded as a cult classic.
I have to ask. Any chance of Tommy coming back in any form?
I know, Kevin McKidd. He was lovely. He was really lovely. It was interesting because we did these posters, which became very iconographic. And he was meant to be on the poster but he was on holiday. And he wouldn't change his holiday... So he didn't get to be on the posters.
Maybe this is his chance to get on the poster.
Maybe he will come back. Maybe he'll come back and he won't be forty -- unlike the rest of them. He'll still be like, "You see?" It's better to have that eternal youth.
