'Trainspotting' Sequel Teaser: Ewan McGregor and the Boys Return with a "Lust for Life"

Danny Boyle's hotly anticipated sequel — 20 years in the making — is due to hit theaters early next year.

They may be 20 years older, but Danny Boyle's Trainspotting gang are returning to screens with same iconic soundtrack as they had in 1996.

In the first teaser for Trainspotting 2  amusingly entitled T2  Iggy Pop's "Lust for Life" plays as Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle assemble on a train platform (where the original film kicked off).

The long-gestating sequel  discussed for years following the success of the first, which catapulted the actors into stardom  finally went into production early this summer, with Sony, Tristar and Film4 on board.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter last year, Boyle said the actors were "understandably worried" about damaging the reputation of the first film and did "not want to let people down or to just be cashing in."

T2 is set to borrow elements from author Irvine Welsh's follow-up book Porno, which is set 10 years after the original, but will, according to Boyle, be it's "own thing."

T2 is due for release early next year, hitting U.S. theaters on Feb. 3.
