Trainspotting sequel to be filmed next year.

The long-awaited Trainspotting sequel will be filmed next summer, 20 years after the original was released, director Danny Boyle has confirmed.

Original stars Ewan McGregor, Jonny Lee Miller, Ewan Bremner and Robert Carlyle are all returning for the new film.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Boyle confirmed that the shoot was planned for "May/June".

The film, loosely based on Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting follow-up Porno, could be released later next year.

Boyle said filming of the sequel might be as tight as the first, which was shot in less than two months.

Miller and Carlyle both star in US TV shows - CBS's Elementary and ABC's Once Upon a Time respectively.

"They only get this little window off, so either you wait for the contract to run down, which could be as late as three years, or you kind of try and do it in this window," Boyle said.

"But all four lads are back in."
