Actor Ewan McGregor is now "not keen" on reprising the drug addict role of RENTON in a TRAINSPOTTING sequel.

The Scottish hunk expressed an interest last year (02) in reprising his break-through role in a big screen adaptation of author Irvine Welsh's follow-up novel PORNO - although he stressed a good script would be essential if he were to agree to the film.

Now, McGregor - who is now a major Hollywood player - has concluded that he is reluctant to commit to the project, which would also see Trainspotting stars Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner return.

The Star Wars actor says, "If it wasn't as good, people would remember a poor sequel instead of a great original. I wouldn't touch it just in case it didn't work out."
