Swansea Al Akbar as Twin Town rides again

THE Twin Town team are back together for a sequel which sees the ‘twins’ – played by Rhys Ifans and brother Llyr – returning from Morocco to their beloved Swansea.

The ‘Welsh Train Spotting’, set fire to a fair few picture-postcard stereotypes in launching Ifans on his way to the top and remains a cult classic with a particularly rabid following in its native land. A very strong and largely Welsh ensemble also featured Welsh Icons like Brian Hibbard.

Director Kevin Allen – brother of Keith, Uncle of Lily and father of rising Swansea City start Joe – hopes the screenplay will be well on the way by this Autumn and explained that interesting title.

“It just means Swansea is great. They love Swansea. They have converted to Islam and they love Swansea City. They are not fundamentalists at all. They have just converted to Islam,” he said.

Much of the original cast will be back in action as the brothers come home for the funeral of Mr Mort – Ronnie Williams who played him in the original tragically took his own life soon after the film’s release.

Title sequence from the Twin Town, 1997.
