Get ready, there’s a Trainspotting TV Series in the works, say Danny Boyle…

Ok, so we’re all excited for the Trainspotting sequel, right? Look, we were THAT age when the first one came out and we’re feeling old, ok? Ok…

Anyway, we we’re looking forward to T2 (check out the trailer here) but not for a second did we think there’s more front he world of Danny Boyle and Trainsptting potentially coming… and not only a movie.

Speaking to NME, Boyle revealed that, after the sequel, Trainspotting could have a future on TV: “Basically, I’ve plans for them all. All in various kind of schedules or adaptations.” It’s all ruling on cable TV, cable TV has some interesting developments. We’re working on all these different kind of things.”

But the TV Show may not simply be more of the same, but might explain part of the world that exists in the books but doesn’t make it to the screen: “I think now anybody who’s in the book, whether they like it or not, they’re working on the way of being in the film. You keep that in mind. As soon as you’ve written it, you’re thinking about how it can move into different mediums.”

So, a Trainspotting extended universe? Aye, why not… everyone else is doing it. What do you all think?

T2: Trainspotting opens January 27th, 2017, in the United Kingdom and on February 3rd in the United States and Canada.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
