It’s been exactly twelve years since Twin Town first hit UK cinemas, so the news of a prospective sequel couldn’t be more well timed. According to Mandrake, the second outing for the terrible Lewis twins is finally revving up – but before we get onto the details of part two, you’ll very likely need a reminder on the first.
Twin Town starred Rhys Ifans and his brother Llyr as a pair of conniving brothers that take cruel vengeance upon Swansea’s local kingpin, and was directed by Kevin Allen, the brother of Keith, father of Joe and uncle of Lily. Danny Boyle is listed as one of the Executive Producers and, to be honest, the influence of Trainspotting doesn’t just show, it gets shown off.
