In 2002, director Danny Boyle released 28 Days Later, a film set in London that gave a refreshing take on the zombie genre. A sequel was released and a third movie was rumored a few years ago, but was shelved. However, new information has come to light about it.
While promoting his new film, Steve Jobs, Boyle spoke about the possibility of returning to the series:
“I’ve got no problem [with 28 Months Later],” Boyle explains to IndieWire. “It’s the usual thing, …it’s not about whether people think it’s a good idea that you’re directing. It’s whether you respond to the script or not. It’s just like on [Steve Jobs]. I got the script and I went, ‘That was amazing. I hope I can add to that somehow and it be even better than just the experience of reading it."
Earlier this year, Alex Garland talked about the possibility of a third 28 Days Later film, and that he had an idea for it; however, he didn't want to continue with the series:
"About two years ago, Danny started collaborating on the potential to make ‘Trainspotting 2,’ another sequel. In that conversation, an idea for ’28 Months’ arrived. I had a funny idea. I had a sort of weird idea that popped into my head...I had this thought, and I suggested it to Andrew 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."
As of right now, nothing is 100% set in stone, however I'm glad that there is a chance of this sequel being made!
