Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller: Danny Boyle shares details on "Trainspotting 2" (CBS)

Oscar-winner Danny Boyle has been highly regarded for his directing work with films like "Slumdog Millionaire" and "127 Hours," but he may owe it all to his 1996 breakout hit, "Trainspotting." The drug-fueled dark comedy starred Ewan McGregor as a young Scottish hooligan who gets addicted to heroin with his friends. It became a sleeper hit and helped launch Boyle, as well as McGregor, to stardom. "Trainspotting" was loosely based off of a novel by Irvine Welsh, who penned a follow-up book called "Porno" in 2002. At the New York premiere Tuesday night of his latest psychological thriller, "Trance," Boyle spoke with about his plans to make a "Trainspotting" sequel and revealed to us that it won't be a strict adaptation of Welsh's "Porno."
