The cast of the original movie including Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle are back as Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie have returned for the sequel.
The movie’s story is based loosely on Irvine Welsh’s 2002 novel Porno, the Scottish author’s follow-up to his 1993 tale of Edinburgh heroin addicts. John Hodge, the original Trainspotting screenwriter is also back for the sequel and writing the lines as Boyle takes over the direction charge.
Porno’s story follows-up on the character’s lives when Renton returns to Scotland after several years as a nightclub owner in Amsterdam. He has ripped off his former associates Sick Boy, Begbie and Spud following the quartet’s drug deal in Trainspotting.
The story sees Sick Boy, Spud and Renton embarking on a pornography venture as the latter does his best to stay out of Begbie’s way to avoid a violent confrontation.
The movie has already got a teaser trailer which has no new footage to add. It acts like a fond reminder of the previous movie and some of its thrilling scenes that we all fell in love with featuring Renton, Spud, Sick Boy and Begbie. We hear McGregor’s voiceover about the choice while Iggy Pop’s Lust for Life plays in the back. The screen then shows Boyle’s name and promises that the original cast is returning for Trainspotting 2, subsequently titled T2.
