INTERVIEW: Danny Boyle for T2 TRAINSPOTTING

On March 17, 2017, I was pleased to have sat in on a roundtable interview with Danny Boyle, a director whose 1996 film Trainspotting changed the way I looked at movies. (For my personal take on Trainspotting, click here.) When I heard Danny Boyle and the cast of Trainspotting were coming back for T2 Trainspotting, a sequel based on Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno (which chronicles the further adventures of Mark Renton, Daniel “Spud” Murphy, Francis Begbie, and Simon “Sick Boy” Williamson), I couldn’t have been happier to be in the position to see it early and review it.

Then I was offered an opportunity to interview Mr. Boyle, and you can probably guess how I reacted to that.

Questions are asked by the following people in this order (click to see their webpages or author archives):
