The ‘Trainspotting’ Crew Is Back in First Teaser for Danny Boyle’s Sequel ‘T2′
The Trainspotting crew is finally back together.
It’s been 20 years since we first met Rent Boy, Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie in the 1996 Danny Boyle film, and we’re finally getting a sequel. The first teaser for the Trainspotting sequel T2, via The Guardian, shows a train passing to reveal Ewen Bremner’s Spud, Ewan McGregor‘s Renton, Johnny Lee Miller’s Sick Boy, and Robert Carlyle’s Begbie standing along the tracks. It’s not much, but it’s all scored to the sound of Iggy Pop’s “Lust for Life,” which will make you want to rewatch Trainspotting immediately.
With a script from original screenwriter John Hodges, T2 will loosely follow Irving Welsh’s Porno novel, the sequel to his Trainspotting. The book finds the gang reunited 10 years later, but this time in the porn business. The film started shooting in May and hitss theaters January 27, 2017, so we’ll likely get a teaser in the coming months. Till then, don’t let your mates tie you to the railway tracks.
