A film insider tells The Sun that a dispute between Ewan and director Danny Boyle has now been patched up.

The source states: “Thankfully, they finally patched things up and Ewan is now very fired up about making the sequel.

“Like the first movie, he is going to be the central character and will have the most work on the project.

“So he is very invested and is offering a lot of input on the script. It’s full steam ahead.”

It’s believed that cast members Robert Carlyle and Jonny Lee Miller will also be reprising their roles.

The first film was based on Irvine Welsh’s 1993 novel of the same name, and the author later published a sequel ‘Porno’ in 2002.

‘Porno’ picked up where the film left off, including elements of the storyline that did not feature in the first book.

There’s no word yet on who will pen the movie’s script.
