Trainspotting 2 wants you to be an extra in an 80s nightclub scene

Filming for the sequel to Danny Boyle's seminal movie Trainspotting is underway, and the crew is looking for extras to appear in a nightclub scene.

That's right - you could be in Trainspotting 2, or T2 to give it its official title.

Infamous Edinburgh nightclub Cav put out the call on their official Facebook page, instructing people between the ages of 18 & 30 years old to attend the shoot on June 14 in their best 80s gear.

They revealed that Danny Boyle and the original cast of Ewan McGregor (Rent Boy), Robert Carlyle (Begbie), Jonny Lee Miller (Sickboy) and Ewen Bremner (Spud) will all be in attendance at the limited capacity event.

We've already been told that T2, which is inspired by Irvine Welsh's novel Porno, will be set 20 years after the events of the original film, which leads us to think that the 80s club scene could be some kind of flashback.

Anyone lucky enough to bag a place will surely find out at the shoot, but they're going to need to be on their best behaviour. Cav will be locking away the cheap and cheerful Alcopops that fly off the bar on its regular nights; this is a strictly alcohol-free affair.

Still, as opportunities to get yourself on the big screen go, they don't come much cooler than this. Sign yourself up while you still can.
