Hot on the heels of Trainspotting 2, the follow-up to ’90s club culture classic Human Traffic is now also being written by the film’s original writer and director, Justin Kerrigan.
Rumours about the movie started a few months ago when a Facebook page emerged called Human Traffic: The Revolution, accompanied by the description: “Friends reunite to have fun in Ibiza!”
Danny Dyer, who starred in the 1999 film as Moff, teased the sequel release on Twitter yesterday (May 16), writing: “Moff. One of my favourite characters ever. That’s all I’m saying on the matter.”
The British-Irish movie centered around five rave-loving twenty-somethings and a drug-fuelled weekend in Cardiff and was famed for its use of archival footage in creating social and political commentary. The soundtrack was a seminal document of its time, featuring some of dance music’s biggest names, including Fatboy Slim and Carl Cox.
John Simm, Lorraine Pilkington, Shaun Parkes and Nicola Reynolds were also among the original cast members, along with cameos from Carl Cox and the late Howard Marks.
The BAFTA winning Sally Hibbin is on board to produce Human Traffic: The Revolution but it’s not known yet which characters will be returning for the second offering. No release date has been shared.
Keep an eye on the Facebook page for more info and remind yourself of the original with this clip.
