In the new film, the story picks up 20 years after the original film and brings back four of the main characters: Renton (McGregor), Sickboy (Miller), Spud (Ewen Bremner), and Begby, (Robert Carlyle).
Jonny Lee Miller, best known for him portrayal as hacker Zero Cool has been cast as Sherlock Holmes in CBS’ upcoming pilot titled “Elementary.”
The new film will take place across two time periods. It will begin 200 years in the past, but the bulk of the story will take place in the 1970’s. That’s right… a 1970’s vampire movie from Tim Burton… this has win written all over it.
