What's up guys and gals,
It looks like the sequel to Danny Boyle's cult classic Trainspotting is officially on the way. Trainspotting 2 will see the return of the entire original cast with production set to begin next Spring.
According to Variety:
Sony’s TriStar Pictures has acquired worldwide rights to Danny Boyle’s sequel to “Trainspotting,” with shooting starting in the late spring.
Sony made a pre-emptive bid to acquire the rights Friday.
The untitled film, based on characters created by Irvine Welsh, reunites director Danny Boyle with screenwriter John Hodge and all of the principal cast of the 1996 film. Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle will reprise the roles of Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie, respectively.
This all sounds pretty awesome to me, what about you guys and gals? Leave us your thoughts on the sequel below in the comments. Stay tuned for more details about the upcoming film.
Trainspotting 2 is expected to hit theaters sometime 2017.
