Human Traffic 2 is reportedly “ready to go”.
The sequel to 1999 cult classic Human Traffic, Human Traffic: The Revolution, was initially teased in 2016, when film production company Parallax East revealed that the story would be set in Cardiff and Ibiza.
Now, in a new feature interview with mixmag, the film’s director Justin Kerrigan has confirmed that the second instalment is ready to start filming, saying “it’s time to make the film. We’ve got everything scripted and ready to go.”
According to mixmag, Kerrigan has rewritten the script since lockdown started, with “The Revolution” part of the title dropped: it’ll now be based around another long weekend in Cardiff, and “the plot will be about how the characters ‘try and come together in a completely new time'”.
The original cast, including Danny Dyer, John Simm, and Lorraine Pilkington are also expect to reprise their roles as Moff, Jip and Lulu. Kerrigan has also launched a fundraiser for the film, due to the first being funded by a private investor. “I’ve got no shortage of actors, producers, art directors, musicians and special effects people that want to work on the film,” he said, “But actually getting the film funded is another deal altogether. The first film wasn’t funded by the British film industry at the time. It was funded by a private investor. Human Traffic wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for independent finance.”
