HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/3/31 – “Two years ago, when John Hodge wrote this script and gave it to Danny…and send it out to us… That’s when we knew that we’d all sign up to it” says T2: Trainspotting star Ewan McGregor.
T2: Trainsportting is set twenty years after the events of the first film. Mark Renton comes back to Edinburgh after betraying his friends, and their lives aren’t much better than they were when he left: Spud managed to get his life together but now he’s suicidal, Simon is running his father’s pub and is involved in blackmail and all sorts of crooked business, and the psychotic Begbie is in jail, trying to get out and look for revenge.
This film stars:

- Robert Carlyle (@robertcarlyle_) as Begbie
- Ewen Bremner as Spud
- Jonny Lee Miller (@jonnyjlm) as Simon
The first Trainspotting film was a worldwide success, and now that twenty years have passed the director Danny Boyle decided to make the long-awaited sequel to the classic.
Both films are based on the novels by author Irvine Welsh and were produced by Danny Boyle, Christian Colson, Andrew Mcdonald and Bernard Bellew.
T2: Trainspotting premiered on March 17 as a limited release and it’s going wide on March 31.
