Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a sequel.

In what might soon be known as the year of the revival, 2016 will not only see the return of Twin Peaks 25 years on, but the long-rumored Trainspotting sequel is edging closer to reality.

2016 will be 20 years since the acclaimed British film made Danny Boyle a household name, and Ewan McGregor a critic's favorite.

While Boyle originally spoke of a potential sequel during the press junket for Trance last year, McGregor has just given the project his approval:

It looks like it might happen. The idea is that we shoot it in 2016, which would be 20 years after the original came out. And I'd be up for it. I wouldn't have been 10 years ago, but I am now.

Boyle and McGregor famously fell out over Boyle's choice to replace the actor with Leo DiCaprio in The Beach, but it seems McGregor's ready to put that behind him.

The plans certainly sound intriguing. Now: choose a cast. Choose a release date. Thanks.
