The 61-year-old filmmaker is the new frontrunner to helm the upcoming James Bond movie, which will see Daniel Craig in his final outing as secret agent 007, according to Variety.

The Hearst Movie & A Martini group is meeting for a screening of “T2 Trainspotting” in Bethel.
The film directed by Oscar-winner Danny Boyle is the sequel to the 1996 independent hit about the drug underworld in Edinburgh, Scotland. The film picks up the lives of the same characters 20 years later, with Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller and the other members of the original cast.
Hearst entertainment writer Joe Meyers will moderate a discussion after the film.

Part of this is because we're talking on cellphones in cars - his moving en route to an airport, mine illegally parked in residential Houston. The background crackle of digital networks provides a patina of dull noise.

McGregor: ‘T2 Trainspotting’ is ‘a movie for today’
Nostalgia can be tricky, casting a rose-colored glow on memories that may not deserve it. Do we look back fondly on our youth because it was so magical, or simply because it was our youth, with so many mistakes yet to be made?

BERLIN — The Berlin Film Festival is in high gear, and grabbing center stage Friday was the “Trainspotting” sequel, which is already a hit in the U.K.
“T2 Trainspotting” is a 21-years-later reunion with the same four Scottish lads that made the Danny Boyle original a phenomenon.
Boyle showed with half of his quartet, Jonny Lee Miller (“Elementary”) and Ewen Bremner and said, “We’d hopefully got something that didn’t feel like a rehash or a return.”
