Choose Life, Choose To Watch The First Teaser Trailer For ‘Trainspotting 2’

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose to make a sequel 20 years after the original came out. The original cast for Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting, the 10th greatest British movie of all-time according to the British Film Institute, will return in Trainspotting 2. Or as it’s referred to as in the just-released teaser trailer, T2, which I’m pretty sure is already taken. Little is known about the plot of the film, other than Boyle, who won the Oscar for Best Director for Slumdog Millionaire, saying that “it’s been 20 years since we met these characters, and John Hodge’s screenplay brilliantly explores what’s happened to them — and to us — in the intervening years.”

In a separate interview, Jedi master Ewan McGregor made reference to Hodge’s sequel novel, Porno (which takes place a decade, not 20 years, after the events of the first book), and that his script is “really, really, really good. I think, if that had not happened, none of us would be into it.” I bet McGregor said the same thing about Mortdecai. Shooting for Trainspotting 2, which is due out in January 2017, begins today. Speaking of shooting: What Lou Reed song will Boyle pick for T2‘s heroin scene? My money’s on “The Kids.”
