Danny Boyle, Ewen Bremner, Johnny Lee Miller and Anjela Nedyankova at the 67th Berlinale International Film Festival screening of 'T2 Trainspotting' - Berlin, United Kingdom - Friday 10th February 2017
It's been 20 years since we last saw four freewheeling young junkies from Edinburgh spiral through a series of adventures that left their friendship in tatters. And now the entire cast is back, as are director Danny Boyle, writer John Hodge and novelist Irvine Welsh. Since the characters have aged into middle-aged men now, the film has a very different kind of energy to it, mixing the visceral imagery with a knowing sense of nostalgia. And once again, it has a lot to say about the state of the world.
It's been two decades since Renton (Ewan McGregor) betrayed his mates. He's living in Amsterdam when a health scare forces him to think about heading back to Scotland to face the music. Spud (Ewen Bremner) hasn't held a grudge for one very good reason, but he's still a junkie and has been alienated from his wife (Shirley Henderson) and son. Simon (Jonny Lee Miller), aka Sick Boy, is furious but soon gets over it as he realises that maybe Renton can help him and his hooker cohort Veronika (Anjela Nedyalkova) finally open a brothel. On the other hand, the hotheaded Begbie (Robert Carlyle) won't be quite so forgiving. He has just escaped from prison, and his first thought is how to get even with Renton.
Hodge's script digs into the idea that these men have seen their hopes and dreams fade away, even though there's still a glimmer of desire left. And Boyle directs the film with the same spark of energy, spiralling through colourful cutaways, hilarious sight gags, wacky antics and pulsing music. It's an intriguingly grown-up variation on the first movie, and it still engulfs the audience with its sights, sounds and emotions. These are men who believe that their wasted youth has led them into an equally wasted adulthood. And there isn't much time left to make something of themselves.

The sequel reunites the old cast for a reason.
'Trainspotting' returns this week after 21 long years with 'T2 Trainspotting'; a sequel loosely based on Irvine Welsh's follow-up book 'Porno'. With this long-anticipated new project, we see the return of director Danny Boyle, as well as all the main actors from the original movie led by Jonny Lee Miller.
Jonny Lee Miller was glad to be back on the set of 'Trainspotting'
It's not always easy to get stars back for late sequels, let alone the whole cast, especially when there's a huge disparity between their age then and their age now. So what is it about 'Trainspotting' that attracted the likes of Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner back to their 20-something-year-old personas?

Mark Renton urges 'choose life' with Danny Boyle sequel.
The iconic Scottish black comedy saga continues with the sequel to the gritty, Oscar nominated 1996 film 'Trainspotting'. 'T2: Trainspotting' is set a decade after the first film and reunites the whole cast along with director Danny Boyle ('Steve Jobs', 'Slumdog Millionaire') and original screenwriter John Hodge ('Trance', 'The Beach').
Ewan McGregor returns in 'T2: Trainspotting'
Released 20 years after the first movie which explored the hard drug scene of Edinburgh, 'T2: Trainspotting' is loosely based on the 2002 novel 'Porno' by Irvine Welsh - the sequel to his 1993 book 'Trainspotting' which explores the characters lives with porn as the main theme instead of heroin. Each of the characters in the original movie cross paths once again with all the original stars, including Irvine Welsh himself who returns in the cameo role of Mikey Forrester.
Set 20 years after the original movie, we see our favourite once drug-addled Scotsman reunited. After Renton pledged to make his life better and stop taking heroin, he ran off with the takings of the groups drug-deal and had not been seen by any of the group since. Troublemaker Begbie is still on the wrong side of the law and finds his temper taking control and constantly getting him into trouble, once he's released from jail, causing mayhem comes as standard for the moustachioed brute.
Spud has changed the least but he's still the most genuine member of the group. Sickboy finds himself running a pub a failing pub which he tries to modernise. In a bid to make money, Sickboy finds himself becoming entwined with various shady characters looking to make money by legal and illegal means.
While most of the group have found themselves cutting their intake of heroin, that doesn't mean that they're on the straight and narrow. Each one is still battling various demons from their past and make a living example of the old adage 'old habits die hard'.

It’s been nearly 20 years since the original film starring Ewan McGregor and Robert Carlyle was released.
Director Danny Boyle has said he plans to begin shooting the long awaited Trainspotting sequel next summer. If all goes to plan Boyle hopes that the film will then hit cinemas later in 2016, in time for the original film’s 20th anniversary.
Danny Boyle hopes to begin shooting Trainspotting sequel next year.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Boyle said that the shoot was planned for “May/June” 2016, but added that it all depends on Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle’s shooting schedules. Both actors are currently tied up with television commitments in the US, with Carlyle starring in ‘Once Upon A Time’ and Miller in ‘Elementary’.

The sequel will be adapted from Irvine Welsh's follow-up novel 'Porno', and will feature Ewan McGregor, Robert Carlyle, Jonny Lee Miller and Ewan Bremner.
With five months to go until the classic original movie celebrates its twentieth anniversary, Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle has confirmed that all four of the main cast members of Trainspotting are on board to make a sequel.
Boyle, who was speaking at the Telluride Film Festival ahead of the first-ever screening of the Steve Jobs biopic project he helped to save from oblivion, also announced that the screenplay for the sequel (adapted from Irvine Welsh’s 2002 novel ‘Porno’) had already been written by John Hodge, who was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the first movie in 1997.

As part of the Paleyfest Made In NY event, the Paley Center for Media unveil a screening for crime drama 'Elementary' which has recently begun its second season.
'Lucky Number Slevin' star Luvy Liu and 'Eli Stone' star Jonny Lee Miller are snapped filming a scene on the set of their modern Sherlock Holmes TV series 'Elementary'. The pair are seen sat beside each other on a bench in the middle of Manhattan while Jonny gesticulates wildly.
Nearly 20 years after Interview With the Vampire, Neil Jordan returns to the genre to breath some new life into a mythology that has grown stale, predictable and rather mopey (see Twilight). With a lively script by Buffini, Jordan creates a lushly stylish dramatic thriller that continually takes us aback with off-beat storytelling and complex characters who don't always do what we expect them to.
The story centres on mother-daughter immortals Clara and Eleanor (Arterton and Ronan), who are on the run when they arrive in a fading British seaside town. The resourceful Clara seduces the nervous Noel (Mays) so they can stay in his dilapidated Byzantium guesthouse. To earn some cash, the always resourceful Clara turns the empty rooms into a brothel. Meanwhile, Eleanor befriends the fragile young Frank (Jones) and reveals the fact that she and her mother are actually more than 200 years old and need human blood to survive. Through all of this, they're being chased by two elder vampires, the ruthless Ruthven (Miller) and the more sympathetic Darvell (Riley), both of whom share a tangled romantic past with Clara.
Unusually intelligent, the film holds our interest with an astonishing series of twists and turns plus an array of colourful characters that play on stereotypes. Holding it all together is a fairly simple plot that reveals itself in bits and pieces until the full picture comes into focus. From this point, we pretty much know what has to happen in the big finale, but watching events unfold is satisfying and sometimes both thrilling and moving.
