"Trainspotting 2" In The Works

Sneak Peek the first teaser footage from Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle's "Trainspotting 2", written by Oscar-nominated writer John Hodge. 

Boyle has reunited with the first film's original cast/crew.

"This has been a long time coming," said Boyle. "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. That will be the only criteria..."

The original UK-lensed black comedy feature released in 1996, was based on the novel of the same name by author Irvine Welsh, following a group of heroin addicts in a late 1980's economically depressed area of Edinburgh, Scotland and their passage through life.

Beyond drug addiction, other themes in the film include an exploration of urban poverty and squalor.

In 2004 "Trainspotting" was voted the best Scottish film of all time in a general public poll.
