The follow up to Human Traffic has been officially confirmed, with its director saying the film will be “a reaction to Brexit.”
Human Traffic: The Revolution was announced by writer and director Justin Kerrigan at Cardiff’s Tramshead over the weekend (April 6) where a 20th anniversary celebration for the original film was taking place.
The original Human Traffic film was released in 1999 and was set over the course of a drug-fuelled weekend in Cardiff. The cult film starred Danny Dyer, John Simm, Lorraine Pilkington, Shaun Parkes and Nicola Reynolds.
Kerrigan shouted “we’re doing Human Traffic 2″ to huge applause. He added: “It’s about one race, the human race and a reaction to Brexit. We love you people and we can’t wait to see you again.” You can watch the announcement here:
