First Pictures And Footage From Trainspotting Sequel Are Revealed
In an era dominated by sequels this is the one that I’m both looking forward to and dreading the most.
Dreading it because Trainspotting was so goddamn goodthatit has a lot to live up to in my mind, but looking forward to it because Trainspotting was so goddamn good that I simply have to see the follow up. This is one that I’ll be booking my opening night ticket for way in advance.
Danny Boyle and gang are shooting on the streets of Edinburgh at the moment and a passer by captured some of the action on his phone. We get to seeEwan Bremner, aka Spud, in action.
Thefilm will take place 20 years after the original, and is said to be loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s follow up ‘Porno.’Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle are all returning to reprise their roles. It’s Robert Carlyle’s return that excites me most, mainly because I have read Porno and his character, Begbie, is a lunatic in it.
Although the film is ‘loosely’ based on the book, author Irvine Welsh explained why it won’t be exactly the same
“We’ve had to evolve past that, because the actors would have been ten years older when Porno came out, and now they’re 20 years older. It has to take into account that reality,”
Here’s some more photos taken from the set.
