It had been reported that the Trainspotting sequel was already underway but according to its lead star Ewan McGregor, filming actually begins in May.
“We haven’t started yet, we start shooting at the end of May,” he told Collider. “The script only arrived very recently, which was really, really, really good.
“I think, if that had not happened, none of us would be into it. I think we’re all sort of somewhat protective of what Trainspotting means to people, and what it means to us.
“None of us want to make a poor sequel to it. So had we not been presented with the most extraordinary script, which we were, I think we wouldn’t be making the sequel. But because we were, we are.”
Trainspotting 2 is expected to land in cinemas sometime next year.
