With five months to go until the classic original movie celebrates its twentieth anniversary, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle has confirmed that all four of the main cast members of Trainspotting are on board to make a sequel.

Boyle, who was speaking at the Telluride Film Festival ahead of the first-ever screening of the Steve Jobs biopic project he helped to save from oblivion, also announced that the screenplay for the sequel (adapted from Irvine Welsh’s 2002 novel ‘Porno’) had already been written by John Hodge, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the first movie in 1997.

'Elementary' My Dear... Mycroft? Rhys Ifans To Join The Cast Of Sherlock Holmes


Rhys Ifans Jonny Lee Miller Lucy Liu Robert Downey Jr Benedict Cumberbatch Martin Freeman Basil Rathbone Jeremy Brett

Rhys Ifans will join the cast of Elementary, alongside Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Lui. The Welsh actor will play Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock's older brother. He is a definite feature in the season's premiere, airing in September but any possibility of further appearances has not been mentioned.

CBS' Elementary sets the traditional story of the famous detective in New York. Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu starring as Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson will, according to reports encounter Ifans in London. The season premiere will be set in the British capital as the deducing duo are forced to  deal with one of Sherlock's former cases. Ifans as Mycroft allows them to stay with him at Baker Street. Apparently a reasonable amount of sibling rivalry and tension will ensue.

Byzantium Review


Good

Nearly 20 years after Interview With the Vampire, Neil Jordan returns to the genre to breath some new life into a mythology that has grown stale, predictable and rather mopey  (see Twilight). With a lively script by Buffini, Jordan creates a lushly stylish dramatic thriller that continually takes us aback with off-beat storytelling and complex characters who don't always do what we expect them to.

The story centres on mother-daughter immortals Clara and Eleanor (Arterton and Ronan), who are on the run when they arrive in a fading British seaside town. The resourceful Clara seduces the nervous Noel (Mays) so they can stay in his dilapidated Byzantium guesthouse. To earn some cash, the always resourceful Clara turns the empty rooms into a brothel. Meanwhile, Eleanor befriends the fragile young Frank (Jones) and reveals the fact that she and her mother are actually more than 200 years old and need human blood to survive. Through all of this, they're being chased by two elder vampires, the ruthless Ruthven (Miller) and the more sympathetic Darvell (Riley), both of whom share a tangled romantic past with Clara.

Unusually intelligent, the film holds our interest with an astonishing series of twists and turns plus an array of colourful characters that play on stereotypes. Holding it all together is a fairly simple plot that reveals itself in bits and pieces until the full picture comes into focus. From this point, we pretty much know what has to happen in the big finale, but watching events unfold is satisfying and sometimes both thrilling and moving.

Among the CBS TV show actors arriving at the network's 2013 Upfront Presentation in New York were Sharon Osbourne from 'The Talk' (who doesn't refrain from her usual face-pulling shenanigans) and the cast of 'How I Met Your Mother' Josh Radnor, Jason Segel, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris and Alyson Hannigan.

Byzantium Trailer


Clara and Eleanor are a mother and daughter, born two centuries ago as vampires and surviving only on the blood of mortal beings. They escape to an English seaside town and are taken into an abandoned guesthouse by the owner, Noel. While Clara takes on a job as a lady of the night who drains the blood from her clients, Eleanor has dreams of being a writer, chronicling her life as a vampire in pages that she usually scatters in the wind. It isn't long before they are discovered, both by the mortal people of the town and by The Brotherhood; an all-male vampire organisation that seek to find and kill Clara. Eleanor meets a boy called Frank, who she develops feelings for and spills the secrets of her world to, angering her mother who fears for their safety. As knowledge of their existence spreads further and further, they are forced to confront their past and the deadly secrets that come with it.

Trainspotting Sequel: Will Ewan McGregor Return? (And Other Questions)


Danny Boyle Ewan McGregor Robert Carlyle Jonny Lee Miller

Ewan McGregor's Renton famously announced that he hadn't "felt that good since Archie Gemmill scored against Holland in 1978!" in Danny Boyle's classic Trainspotting in 1996. Now, two decades later, we could find ourselves checking in with the Glasgow addict again, though we doubt he's be feeling particularly euphoric about the state of Scottish football in recent years. After several false starts, filmmaker Boyle says a script for a Trainspotting sequel is in progress, based on Irvine Walsh's 2002 novel Porno. The Manchester-born director - who helmed the Olympic Games opening ceremony in London before turning down a Knighthood from the Queen - is planning to release the new film in 2016, on the 20th anniversary of the original.

"This has been a long time coming," the Oscar winning director told Canadian film website The Playlist. "There's always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2." Encouragingly, Boyle believes the original cast could be re-assembled to play middle-aged versions of their characters, including McGregor. "I don't think there will be any barriers to Ewan or any of the cast coming back.The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw it because they were younger," the filmmaker added. 

It's likely that McGregor has been offered various unsavoury Trainspotting-linked projects in the past, though a sequel with Boyle at the helm will no doubt be too good to turn down. The Scottish actor has forged a hugely successful career since the movie, though he's perhaps guilty of taking big money mainstream roles over anything particularly challenging. Another stab at Renton could change that.

Elementary Is Highest Rated Broadcast Of 2013 (With A Little Help From Super Bowl)


Jonny Lee Miller Lucy Liu Beyonce Knowles Madonna

Despite being the latest ever start time for a post-Super Bowl broadcast, Sherlock Holmes drama Elementary scored a massive 20.8 million viewers on Sunday evening (7.8 rating in adults 18-49), according to Nielsen. The show, starring Lucy Liu and Jonny Lee Miller and based on the acclaimed BBC series, scored the title of highest-rated entertainment broadcast of the year.

Elementary delivered a huge 3.45 million viewers more than Alias pulled in following the Super Bowl in 2003. The fast-paced crime-drama delivered a 61% increase over its season average in viewers and a massive 160% increase in the adults 18-49 demographic. After strong reviews, CBS ordered two additional episodes to its current season, bringing the total number of episodes for series one to 24. 

It has also emerged that Beyonce's well-received half-time show extravaganza scored a rating of 48.2/71 in the 8.00pm-8.30pm, which fell short of Madonna's score for her 2012 half-time show, which was mired in controversy following M.I.A's badly thought out two finger salute. According to Deadline.com, Sunday's game, between the San Francisco 49er and the Baltimore Ravens, peaked at 52.9/75 for its nail-biting final half hour.
