“Cable TV has some interesting developments”…

Irvine Welsh has revealed plans for a Trainspotting TV series ahead of the release of the sequel to the iconic 90s film next year.

Speaking to NME about plans for further adaptations of Trainspotting, Welsh said, “It’s all ruling on cable TV, cable TV has some interesting developments. We’re working on all these different kind of things.

“I think now anybody who’s in the book, whether they like it or not, they’re working on the way of being in the film. You keep that in mind. As soon as you’ve written it, you’re thinking about how it can move into different mediums.”

The official trailer for Trainspotting 2 landed earlier this month (November). The first look at the film came in July when a teaser trailer was revealed.

Trainspotting 2 was originally planned to hit cinemas to mark the 20th anniversary of the original film this year, but will now be released in UK cinemas on Friday 27th January.
