Trainspotting 2 has begun filming


Wandering down a street looking a bit worse for wear somewhere in Edinburgh is Spud.

He looks older - not surprising considering it's been twenty years since we were first introduced to the character - but it's undeniably him, and apparently he's still on the brown.

Those shots, showing Ewan Bremner reprising his role as Spud, are thought to be the first we've seen that confirm Danny Boyle has begun filming Trainspotting 2.

The film will be based on Irvine Welsh's written sequel to Trainspotting, Porno, and a release date is likely to be some time next year.

Hopefully it won't be too long before we see a few shots of Ewan McGregor back in his role as Mark Renton.
