Last month, the first glimpse of Danny Boyle’s Trainspotting sequel hit the internet in the form of leaked set shots Ewen Bremner’s Spud strolling around the streets of Edinburgh.

From that moment on, numerous photographs have hit the internet, showing the cast of the 1996 classic reunited in character.

Thanks to some pesky photographers, the first shots of Ewan McGregor and Jonny Lee Miller as Mark 'Rent Boy' Renton and Simon 'Sick Boy' Williamson have arrived.

Surprisingly, the down-and-out heroin addicts look relatively dressed up, both wearing suits as they enter a government building. However, Sick Boy still has his bleached blonde hair.

The sequel will be based on author Irvine Welsh's Trainspotting sequel, Porno, which was released in 2002.

Recently speaking about filming in Scotland, Boyle said: “I feel very fortunate and grateful to be able to make films, and to be able to always have a choice in what I do.

“Coming back to Edinburgh has actually been really fascinating, since filming the first Trainspotting Edinburgh has changed dramatically. You can see the gentrification massively in the city.”

The film, officially titled T2, is currently set for release on 27 January 2017.
