Sony Pictures have released an announcement trailer for the much-anticipated sequel to Trainspotting.
Comprising of clips from the original movie, the trailer for T2 – which appears to be the sequel’s title – confirms that filming has now started and the finished product will be released on 27 January 2017.
Danny Boyle directs, with original stars Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle reprising their roles.
The film does not yet have an official synopsis, though the following is a summary from Porno, the book by Irvine Welsh that is a sequel to the original novel.
Ten years on from Trainspotting, Simon ‘Sick Boy’ Williamson is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity, which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realize his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton and a motley crew that includes the city’s favorite ex-aerated-water-salesman, ‘Juice’ Terry Lawson. In the world of Porno, however, nothing is straightforward, as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address, concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other.
