Chilling British zombie apocalypse film 28 Days later from Alex Garland was one of the best recent undead films, and so was the sequel 28 Weeks Later, so we’re all excited for 28 Months Later.
Alex Garland may currently be promoting his sci-fi thriller Ex Machina, but the third installment of the living dead is still on everyone’s lips. In an interview with IndieWire Garland spoke about how the script is currently being written, but he won’t be working on it.
“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. Partly because of a trip I’d taken. 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.
The rights to ‘28 Days’ were frozen, effectively, because they were shared between Danny [Boyle], [producer] Andrew [McDonald], myself, and Fox. After the second one, none of us really wanted to do another. Fox may or may not have, I don’t know.”
No other details have been released, but we’ll keep you updated.
