Will Rent Boy return?

Ewan McGregor has indicated that yes, might be down for a follow-up to the 1996 film Trainspotting.

McGregor, 44, would seem to be reversing his opinion after having made statements in the past that he wouldn’t work again with Danny Boyle, saying any bad blood between the two has long since passed.

“I would be up for it,” he told The Scotsman. “I’ve said that to Danny. I’ve not seen a script yet and I don’t know if there is one.”

“I miss working with Danny,” McGregor continued. “I did some of my best work with him and he’s one of my favorite directors I’ve worked with. There was some bad blood and ill feeling, but that’s all gone now. I think it might be extraordinary to see a sequel 20 years after the original.”

A script for the sequel has been in the works for years, and it is reportedly based loosely on Porno, Irvine Welsh’s 2002 sequel to the original novel Trainspotting.

The interview also had McGregor admitting that he was excited for the forthcoming Star Wars movie and would reprise the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi if given the opportunity.
