Production Announcement Teaser for Danny Boyle's 'Trainspotting 2'
"Choose life. Choose hope. Choose faith." Production is underway now. And this is good news for fans of the original Trainspotting who have been waiting years and years and years for this sequel. Sony Pictures UK has released a short announcement teaser for Danny Boyle's T2, the sequel to Trainspotting (from 1996), and it doesn't feature any footage from the sequel because they're just starting shooting now. It's made up entirely of footage from the first movie and designed to get people excited about the fact that this one is now happening. The four main guys are back: Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle. Even though it doesn't show much, give it a look and get ready for more drugs and rock.
Here's the first announcement teaser for Danny Boyle's Trainspotting 2, direct from Sony's YouTube:
Discussing the sequel in 2013, Danny Boyle stated: "This has been a long time coming. There's always been this long term plan for Trainspotting 2… The reason for doing it again is that people cherish the original, people remember it or have caught up with it if they never saw because they were younger. So you want to make sure you don't disappoint people." The sequel is based on the book Porno by Irvine Welsh, featuring a screenplay adapted by John Hodge. Production is just underway now, with a release planned for early 2017. "It's not about trying to cash in on the original. It lives in the shadow of the original to a degree but in a really interesting way, which I can't really tell you about." Stay tuned for more updates. Anyone excited?
