In a candid interview with the Guardian, McGregor talks about his reunion with Trainspotting director Danny Boyle, how the sequel has the hard-partying blokes of the first flick patching up old friendships, and how, exactly, Oasis factors into the Trainspotting equation.
Apparently, McGregor read Porno — Irving Welsh's follow-up to Trainspotting, and the inspiration for T2 — and he didn't love it as much as he loved the first novel. That's where the Gallagher brothers and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? get involved, in McGregor's mind, anyway.
“I wasn’t touched by it in the same way, and I didn’t want anything to tarnish the film," he told the Guardian. "No one wants to make a shite sequel. Trainspotting was the Oasis of the film world, something quite amazing.”
