Director Danny Boyle’s 1996 classic ‘Trainspotting’ is famed for many things, including its seminal soundtrack. Underworld’s 'Born Slippy’ and Iggy Pop’s 'Lust For Life’ might have been joined by the work of Britpop legends Oasis too, if the Gallaghers had actually known what the film was about. In a recent Q&A (via the Edinburgh Evening News) costume designer Rachel Fleming recalled a meeting with Oasis songwriter Noel Gallagher.
20 years on from the groundbreaking original, cameras are finally rolling on a ‘Trainspotting’ sequel. It had been known for a while that work was underway on a follow-up film, reuniting director Danny Boyle with the cast of the 1996 cult classic - but now Boyle has confirmed the as-yet untitled sequel has started filming.
In 1996 Danny Boyle gave British Cinema a hero… and Hollywood a battle scar. ‘Trainspotting’ – story of a group of heroin addicts in late 80s Edinburgh, based on the novel by Irvine Welsh – is today recognised as defining moment in our little island’s cinematic history. The film is belatedly getting a sequel in 2017 with Boyle once again directing.
Sony company Tri-Star Pictures have acquired the worldwide distribution rights to Danny Boyle’s long-awaited sequel to ‘Trainspotting,’ multiple sources report.
