Underworld are nothing short of a British institution. Alongside contemporaries like The Chemical Brothers, The Prodigy and Orbital, they’re one of a handful of acts who’ve successfully brought discerning electronic music to the masses, chiefly as a result of their raucous live shows. A festival act up there with the very best, theirs is a unique sound: although it still feels at ease in a club, it’s at a festival (or at least, a suitably large stage) where the sound of ‘Rez’, ‘Cowgirl’ ‘Two Months Off’, ‘Dark & Long’ and ‘Born Slippy’ really pack a punch.
Trainspotting 3 could be in the pipeline according to Robert Carlyle, who revealed the news when speaking at the Edinburgh premiere of T2: Trainspotting.
Carlyle played Begbie in the iconic ‘90s film, resurrecting the role for the sequel which lands this week (Friday 27th January) and is loosely based on Irvine Welsh’s novel Porno.
Speaking about a third Trainspotting film to The Guardian, he said, “We’ve been talking about that, I am up for doing it. So maybe we ain’t seen the end of Begbie just yet.
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.”
Filming is due to begin soon on the sequel to Trainspotting, director Danny Boyle has confirmed.
First announced in 2013, the new film will reunite original cast members Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle.
“All the four main actors want to come back and do it,” Boyle, who directed the original film, told Deadline. “Now it is only a matter of getting all their schedules together, which is complicated by two of them doing American TV series.”
