DIRECTOR Danny Boyle has confirmed that the new Trainspotting film will focus on the enjoyment of real ale.

Twenty years on from the original film, the main characters now have jobs, families and bouts of angina that makes taking smack impractical.

Boyle said: “The film opens with Lust For Life and Renton running down the high street to get home in time for his Ocado delivery.

“All the old characters are there – Renton, Begbie, the other two whose careers never really happened – and this time the caper isn’t about buying a massive shipment of heroin, it’s about making a lovely, nutty home brew on an allotment.”

The original film was controversial, with many claiming it needlessly glamourised Ewan McGregor.

The sequel comes with the tag-line: “Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. No, really, you should. They’re obviously much better than festering in a manky squat.”
