I'd be more curious to see a Filth adaptation...

: If so, I've just read on irvinewelsh.net, from the man himself, he's currently in negotiaions to have his sequel to Trainspotting, Porno, into a movie. Even more exciting I think, is he also emntioned that Filth was in development as well...

: I'm all for getting Porno made into a movie, but ONLY if they can get back the entire original cast. Some say it unlikely, as Ewan McGregor had a falling out wiht the director of Trainspotting after being passed up for Leonardo Dicaprio as the lead in The Beach, BUT, thar be hope: Welsh has said he's looking at someone else to direct...

...not that Porno isn't a good read, but Filth is just on a whole other level. Also, the problems with re-uniting the Trainspotting cast for Porno could cause a lot of strife; they might want to just avoid all those problems and start afresh with an entirely new set of actors, because if the original ones aren't entirely dedicated to doing it, then it just wouldn't be the same. Matching the performances of Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle etc. would be difficult to say the least though.
