Carl is a man on the move, escaping himself, eluding his demons, moving from coun­ try to country, never stopping, never waiting for the boredom or banality to catch up with him. “The conventional wisdom is that you’re running away, you should learn to cope with being fucked­up,” he says. “I don’t hold with that. Life is a dynamic rather than a static process, and when we don’t change, it kills us. It’s not running away, it’s moving on.” Welsh, too, has moved on—with the same unabashed propulsiveness of his prose—from one celebrated novel to another, from one medium to another (from the rabid success of his debut novel, Trainspotting, in 1993, to his work as … Read More

Client Irvine Welsh is set to write “Spring Breakers” Sequel

By Ryan Reed : Rolling Stone May 7, 2014 9:36 AM ET It’s hard to follow up a gangsta, Britney Spears-singing James Franco, but a sequel for the demented 2012 film Spring Breakers is in the works. According to Screen Daily, the second installment will be directed by Jonas Akerlund (Spun) from a script by author Irvine Welsh (Trainspotting), though neither Franco or original director Harmony Korine are currently involved in the project. Inside ‘Spring Breakers,’ the Most Debauched Movie of 2013 “It’s not a direct sequel, although there are allusions to some characters in the original,” says Vincent Maraval of Paris-based production company Wild Bunch, noting that the film’s cast will be a mixture of new and familiar faces. None of the original Spring Breakers stars (Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson and Rachel Korine) are attached to the film, though Maraval’s vague statement doesn’t emphasize which actors will reprise their original roles. The original film was – at least for Korine’s standards – a rare dalliance with the mainstream, utilizing a high-profile cast and semi-large budget. But the plot was still twisted, even compared to his earlier, more experimental work (like Trash Humpers and Gummo), with Franco starring as Alien, a rapper-gangster who bails out a group of … Read More
