Jonathan Melville 16 May, 2016 0

After years of rumours, half-truths and (alleged) falling outs, Trainspotting is finally getting a sequel, with the T2 due to arrive in UK cinemas on 27 January, 2017.

News came from the Film4 Twitter account this morning, along with a teaser trailer and confirmation that Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner will all be back alongside director Danny Boyle.

The announcement follows recent sightings of Ewen Bremner and Danny Boyle filming in the streets of Edinburgh, though it seems filming officially starts today.
