Trainspotting 2, or T2 as it's officially called, will see the return of its leading actors Ewen McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle.

In the 1996 movie, they played the roles of a group of heroin addicts in a disadvantaged area of Edinburgh in the 1980's. The sequel will be set 20 years on and will be loosely based on the novel by Irvine Welsh called Porno, centering around the porn industry.

Commenting on the new movie Robert told the DailyMail:

"The strength of this new script is the fact that the narrative is a bit stronger than it was in the original.

"In the first one, when you think about it, it's hard to remember what they did other than get together, the drug deal at the end, and then it's over.

"This has maybe got a wee bit more to it in terms of what they've been up to through these years. You learn a lot about Renton, Sick Boy and indeed Begbie and where their heads are.

"I think it's an absolutely fantastic script. John Hodge has done a wonderful job, as he did with the original.

"Fingers crossed people will take it on board and they will enjoy it."
