The highly-anticipated sequel to Danny Boyle‘s 1996 classic Trainspotting has taken a step closer to it’s cinematic reality, following the news that Sony‘s TriStar has picked up the sequel.
As well as Boyle, Many of the films’ original cast are on board to return for the sequel, including Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle, with writer John Hodge penning the all-important script that evolves ideas from Irvine Welsh’s novel sequel, Porno – in which we find out what the characters are doing now.
Boyle released a statement after the announcement of TriStar‘s involvement, which included his thoughts on Hodge’s script:
““It’s been 20 years since we met these characters and John Hodge’s screenplay brilliantly explores what’s happened to them – and to us – in the intervening years. We are grateful to Tom [Rothman, Sony Boss] and Hannah [Minghella, President of TriStar] for their support and we can’t wait to get going”
We can expect production for ‘Trainspotting 2’ to get started next summer.
