It was just over three years ago we first announced that the Trainspotting sequel was planned for 2016 — and wouldn’t you know it, Ewan McGregor has just announced that filming begins in a couple months.

Here’s what he told Collider:
We haven’t started yet, we start shooting at the end of May. 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.
I actually trust what he’s saying here and fully expect Trainspotting 2 to do the original proud, especially with Danny Boyle and the original cast returning. Can’t wait.
Did you know that David Bowie turned down the original Trainspotting soundtrack? Why would he do a thing like that?
