28 Months Later movie in the works

28days later

Alex Garland is now busy as a writer and director. After finishing Ex Machina, he will be working on Annihilation, with Natalie Portman possibly starring. Will we get to see his past projects get a sequel; for example 28 Days Later? The writer/director has said that he came up with the story idea for 28 Months Later, the sequel to both 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later; however, he won’t be involved in anything more after that.

“About two years ago, Danny [Boyle, who directed 28 Days Later from Garland’s script] started collaborating on the potential to make Trainspotting 2, another sequel,” Garland says. “In that conversation, an idea for 28 Months arrived. I had a sort of weird idea that popped into my head. Partly because of a trip I’d taken. I had this thought, and I suggested it to [producer] Andrew [Mcdonald] and Danny, but I also said I don’t want to work on it. I don’t really want to play a role, and Andrew said, ‘Leave it to me.’ So he’s gone off and is working on it.”

So it looks like producer Andrew Mcdonald wants to get the project off the ground, and we may be seeing the third film sometime soon.

Are you looking forward to 28 Months Later, or whatever they’re going to name the movie?
