Human Traffic Director Confirms Sequel Is 'Ready To Go'

The director of Human Traffic has revealed that the hotly anticipated sequel is 'ready to go'.

The cult classic starring Danny Dyer, John Simm, Nicola Reynolds, Shaun Parkes, and Lorraine Pilkington came out in 1999, so it's long overdue a revisit.

If you've not seen the original, it follows a group of mates on one wild weekend out in Cardiff.

A heady mix of drug-fuelled fun, excess, and an incredibly soundtrack made the first film a hit, and a sequel has been rumoured to be in the works ever since.

Then, in 2019 - 20 years from the first movie - Kerrigan revealed that Human Traffic 2: Revolution was in the works.

Now, speaking to MixMag, he has confirmed not only that the script has been written, but also that Dyer, Parkes, and Reynolds - who played Moff, Koop, and Nina - are all back involved with the second film.

Having first made the claim at that anniversary celebration at Cardiff's Tramshed in 2019, Kerrigan also reiterated that this film would be a 'reaction to Brexit', Human Traffic style.

Kerrigan said: "It's time to make the film. We've got everything scripted and ready to go. I've got no shortage of actors, producers, art directors, musicians and special effects people that want to work on the film.

"The script that I've written I'd love to direct. I think it's more relevant today than ever. The central themes are fear versus love, money versus love and control versus love. And it's really all about the people coming together. And that's why it was relevant for Brex-s*** and that's why it's relevant now [during the pandemic].

He continued: "It's just as fun and mad as the first film, but it's set in our times. And, you know, the rave generation are mostly parents now but it's really about recapturing the spirit of the times which brought [the characters] all together and the second film is really about how they try and come together in a completely new time."

When asked about how it went down the first time, Kerrigan confirmed that filming the first instalment was 'chaos, just mayhem'.

He added: "It was a crazy time. Me, the cast and the crew were all really tight and we all went back to the same hotel at the end of the day, had a couple of beers and bonded - it was a very special time."

Danny Dyer has also said for years that he would love to return to the character of Moff, referring to his role as 'one of my favourite characters ever' back in 2016.

Hopefully they'll get it together quickly once things start to get a bit easier.
