Filming Begins On Trainspotting 2

We have already seen images of Danny Boyle, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle on the set of Trainspotting 2. Now we finally get to see Ewan McGregor back as Renton and, as in the first film, he seems to be doing a bit of running alongside Ewen Bremner. Filming was taking place in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The film reunites director Boyle with screenwriter John Hodge and all of the principal cast of the 1996 film –Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewen Bremner and Robert Carlyle will reprise the iconic roles of Renton, Sick Boy, Spud and Begbie.

The plan is for the film to be released in 2017 to mark the 21st birthday of the original film.

Danny Boyle had previously said this about filming the sequel. “We’re up in Scotland filming Trainspotting 2 just now. I think what I love most about what I do is the variety, and being able to do something new every day. I get to meet such amazing people all the time. I think everyone’s fear is doing something a robot can do, and getting stuck doing something repetitive. I feel very fortunate and grateful to be able to make films, and to be able to always have a choice in what I do. Coming back to Edinburgh has actually been really fascinating, since filming the first Trainspotting Edinburgh has changed dramatically. You can see the gentrification massively in the city.”

“‘Trainspotting’ was a seminal movie for me,” Tristar’s Hannah Minghella said. “Like almost everyone my age, I had the ‘Choose Life’ poster on my university dorm room wall. I have wanted to work with Danny ever since, so the opportunity to collaborate on the sequel is truly a dream come true. It perfectly represents the filmmaker-driven movies I am committed to making at TriStar.”

Coming Soon had the images and you can see some of them below.
