Danny Boyle's 1996 dark dramedy 'Trainspotting,' based on the Irvine Welsh novel of the same name, follows a group of friends in a low-income area of 1980s Edinburgh, Scotland, as they try to kick their heroin habit. The film launched the careers of its young stars, including Ewan McGregor and Kelly Macdonald, and is ranked at number 10 on the British Film Institute's list of 100 greatest films of all time. Eighteen years later, we revisit the cast of this edgy classic and see what they're up to now.

Teaming with '127 Hours' and '28 Days Later' team Danny Boyle and Christian Colson, FX has begun development of the WW2-set 'Telemark,' the true story of an unknown group of heroes sabotaging Hitler's nuclear ambitions.
After trying his hand at science-fiction, winning an Oscar, and testing himself with a one-actor film about a dude with his hand stuck under a rock, director Danny Boyle returns to familiar territory with 'Trance': the lives of scheming, feuding thieves. When Boyle makes movies about criminals, he rarely focuses on their crimes to look instead at their fallout -- these are what we might call "after-the-heist films."
