Welsh Plots Movie Sequel

IRVINE Welsh is planning a sequel to the movie Trainspotting and has revealed he is writing a prequel to the original novel.

But Ewan McGregor who starred as Renton has said he is not a fan of the book's sequel, Porno, and will not be involved in the second movie.

Speaking at the Edinburgh International Book Festival, Welsh said he hoped work on the film would begin in autumn.

He also spoke about a prequel based on earlier discarded notes about heroin addicts in Edinburgh.
