Irvine is currently at work on SKAGBOYS, a prequel to Trainspotting. Irvine: “It’s basically about how Renton and Sick Boy went from being daft young guys just out for the buzz on drugs, to total junkies. It shows how their attitudes and behaviour start to change as they become more defined by the drug and the culture around it. It basically looks at how British politics, economy and culture dramatically changed in the eigthies, and the ramifications of that for the youth of the time. ”
