Trainspotting 2 is happening! Final arrangements were made!

No Comments

It seemed impossible for Danny Boyle's 1996 Trainspotting to get a sequel, as 19 years have passed and no one really thought of a movie's revival. That is because most of us didn't know that the piece had a literary sequel called Porno. 1996 Trainspotting is based on Irvine Welsh's novel of the same name, and the movie brought together a cast of young popular actors: Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner, Robert Carlyle, and Kevin McKidd.

So while we were thinking that Trainspotting 2 was not likely to happen, not even after press rumors, it seems that the movie is actually on the move. EW reports that TriStar has acquired the rights for the movie, Danny Boyle is at the helm and the original cast will reprise the roles of Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie.

Trainspotting 2 is based on Irvine Welsh's Porno, the literary sequel of Trainspotting. The script is penned by John Hodge and is set 10 years after the first story, when the group of heroine junkies starts a business in pornography. How much will he stick to the source material? We don't know, but we’ve heard he put down a hell of a story.

"Trainspotting was a seminal movie for me. Like almost everyone my age, I had the "˜Choose Life' poster on my university dorm room wall," TriStar president Minghella said in a statement. "I have wanted to work with Danny ever since, so the opportunity to collaborate on the sequel is truly a dream come true. It perfectly represents the filmmaker-driven movies I am committed to making at TriStar."

Everything in Trainspotting 2 seems to be as original as it gets: same director, same cast, same sequel source and same screenwriter. The filming is said to be starting next spring for a 2017 release.
