Director Of 90s Cult Classic Human Traffic Confirmed There Will Be A Sequel
Human Traffic, one of the last great odes to 90s rave culture, is getting a sequel after the original director, Justin Kerrigan, confirmed the news over the weekend.
Speaking at the Tramshed in Cardiff, Justin announced how the 1999 movie will be followed up with a film that will be 'a reaction to Brexit'.
Addressing the crowd, Kerrigan shouted down the microphone: "And Danny Dyer's in it. Danny Dyer's playing Moff. Ask him on social network. Love you, Danny."
According to Wales Online, other original cast members including Shaun Parkes and Nicola Reynolds will feature in the film.
Before announcing the news about Danny Dyer, Kerrigan explained: "We're doing Human Traffic 2," as he held his v's in the air.
He continued: "Nina's on stage, Nicola Reynolds will be returning for the sequel. Do you want Human Traffic 2? Put your twos up.
"It's about one race, the human race and a reaction to Brexit. We love you people, we can't wait to see you again. Thanks for coming. Lots of love."

Speaking to the publication around the time of the films 15th anniversary, he said:
"I'm proud to have worked with all the people on Human Traffic, it was the surprise box office hit of the year and the awards that it won where totally unexpected, but what I'm most proud of is when people tell me 'that's me', that they see themselves in one of the characters.
"It makes me feel that we are all connected in some strange way."
The 1999 comedy followed five friends around the Cardiff club scene as they dealt with their relationships and their personal demons during a weekend.
Starting Friday afternoon, with preparations for clubbing, the five pals are followed from Ecstacy-induced fun through a booze-laden come-down early Saturday morning followed by the weekend's aftermath.
