Production on Danny Boyle’s highly anticipated “Trainspotting” sequel has officially begun with the entire main cast, and Sony Pictures Releasing is celebrating with an adrenaline-fueled teaser trailer announcing the big reunion. The new film is set 20 years after the 1996 movie and will see the characters cross paths again. The script is adapted for the screen by original screenwriter John Hodge, based on the novel “Porno” by Irvine Welsh. Ewan McGregor is returning as Mark ‘Rent Boy’ Renton, Jonny Lee Miller as Simon ‘Sick Boy’ Williamson and Robert Carlyle as Begbie.
The film’s title is actually “T2,” and the trailer features memorable footage from the original film and a voiceover from McGregor. While the teaser confirms that production is officially underway, it also announces that it will be released in the UK on January 27, 2017. Does this mean U.S. audiences should expect the film to be released stateside in winter 2017? It seems possible. Watch the teaser above.
