That’s the Trainspotting sequel which has been rumoured to be on the way for years. Fans of the first have been waiting on tenterhooks for it to be announced, and TrisStar Pictures have nabbed the worldwide rights, while production is officially scheduled to begin in the Spring.
Perhaps the most exciting news though is the fact that the original cast of Trainspotting will return, and that includes Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, and Robert Carlyle. Danny Boyle meanwhile will of course be taking the helm of the follow-up.
Scheduling issues have plagued the Trainspotting sequel, though one of the biggest issues was the fact that Boyle and McGregor had quite the falling out when the director have Leonardo DiCaprio the lead role in The Beach which he had earlier promises to the Star Wars alum. However, they’ve since put their differences aside, hence why this is happening now!
A firm release date has yet to be announced, but Trainspotting 2 – written by John Hodge and based on Irvine Welsh’s own sequel novel Porno – is expected to reach us in 2017.
