All original ‘Trainspotting’ cast members confirmed to return for sequel

December 5, 2015

Word has it the Trainspotting sequel will be filmed in late Spring 2016 with filmmakers hoping for a 2017 release.


Sony’s TriStar Pictures acquired worldwide rights to the film. Director Danny Boyle and screenwriter John Hodge return alongside all of the original title’s principal cast.

Danny Boyle recently admitted that the prospect of making Trainspotting 2 is “worrying” because, as director, he will get “absolutely crucified” if it is a bad film.


Giving an update on the sequel at the London premiere of his latest film, Steve Jobs (back in October), Boyle said, “We’re going up to Scotland very early and we’re going to do a week’s workshop up in Edinburgh working on the script. And we’re filming in May and June of next year.”

Boyle also reassured fans that he is aiming to have the sequel ready in time for Trainspotting‘s 20th anniversary next year, saying: “Hopefully we can get it finished in time to release it in 2016 which is the 20th anniversary year. So yes, we’re on it, and it’s looking good.”
