Filming for the upcoming sequel to Danny Boyle's classic Trainspotting is well underway, and the crew are on the hunt for extras to appear in a nightclub scene. Placed as a casting call on the Facebook page of legendary Edinburgh nightclub Cav, the makers of the film are looking for people between the ages of 18 and 30 to attend a shoot at the venue on 14 June. Danny Boyle plus the original cast of Ewan McGregor (Rent Boy), Robert Carlyle (Begbie), Jonny Lee Miller (Sickboy) and Ewen Bremner (Spud) are set to be in attendance, and the only other stipulation so far is that hopefuls come dressed in their finest 80s gear (no other gear required). With 6,300 people having already clicked attending and a further 3,500 saying they're are 'interested' it sounds like a party you won't want to miss.
