90's cult classic Human Traffic could be getting a sequel
Human Traffic, one of the last great odes to 90s rave culture, could be getting a sequel.
'Human Traffic: The Revolution', which will apparently reunite the cast in Ibiza. Written and directed by Justin Kerrigan, this will be only his second film he's made since the original.
A mysterious Facebook page popped up in March this year for the sequel that has been posting updates on the original movie.
Human Traffic was released in 1999 and revolved around one mass, drug blowout in Cardiff for main characters Jip, Lulu, Koop, Nina and Moff.
It featured John Simm, Lorraine Pilkington, Shaun Parkes and Nicola Reynolds as well as a baby-faced Danny Dyer, who made his film debut as Moff.
Justin Kerrigan has been quoted saying "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 original movie is set in the Cardiff club scene in the 90's: five best friends deal with their relationships and their personal demons during a weekend. Jip calls himself a sexual paranoid, afraid he's impotent. Lulu, Jip's mate, doesn't find much to fancy in men. Nina hates her job at a fast food joint, and her man, Koop, who dreams of being a great hip-hop DJ, is prone to fits of un-provoked jealousy. The fifth is Moff, whose family is down on his behavior. Starting Friday afternoon, with preparations for clubbing, we follow the five from Ecstacy-induced fun through a booze-laden come-down early Saturday morning followed by the weekend's aftermath. It's breakthrough time for at least three of them.
