Fans of 1990s club culture have already been treated to one sequel of a classic film this year with the release of Trainspotting 2 in January, but a follow-up to cult classic Human Traffic could also now be in store.
The film’s original writer and director, Justin Kerrigan, is reportedly writing the long-awaited sequel to the popular British-Irish independent film that gave Danny Dyer his first break in cinema.
The original movie, released in 1999, centred 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. In addition, it’s soundtrack featured some of dance music’s biggest names at the time, including Fatboy Slim and Carl Cox.
Rumours about a sequel began last year when a Facebook page emerged called Human Traffic: The Revolution, accompanied by the description: “Friends reunite to have fun in Ibiza!”
Danny Dyer, who has of course go on to star in The Football Factory and EastEnders also teased the sequel release by tweeting “Moff. One of my favourite characters ever. That’s all I’m saying on the matter.”
The film also starred John Simm, Lorraine Pilkington, Shaun Parkes and Nicola Reynolds.
