The cast of ‘Trainspotting’ will reunite at this year’s Edinburgh Festival

It's 20 years since the original 'Trainspotting' was released

Ewan McGregor, Johnny Lee Miller and Ewen Bremner starred in 1996’s Trainspotting. Now the trio are set to reunite at this year’s Edinburgh Film Festival as part of a special red carpet appearance.

The three actors will be taking a break from filming the sequel to attend a special 20th anniversary screening of Danny Boyle’s original film.

According to the Scotsman, McGregor, Miller and Bremner were offered a private bespoke suit fitting by Stewart Christie & Co, the official “tailors to the stars” for this year’s landmark 70th festival.


And the three actors, who will be kitted out in bespoke outfits for the gala screening, were also offered membership of the company’s exclusive gentleman’s club.

Also confirmed to make an appearance at the film festival are Meg Ryan, Golden Globe-winning Downton Abbey actress Joanne Froggatt, Sadie Frost, Doctor Who star Freema Agyeman and Irish actor Robert Sheehan. Scottish stars Dougray Scott, Brian Cox and James Cosmo are all expected to attend, with Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall as well as Kevin Smith and Clancy Brown.

Filming for the Trainspotting sequel began on May 16 and is based on Irvine Welsh’s 2002 novel Porno.
