Alex Garland Doesn’t Think There Will Ever Be a 28 Months Later

Published

on

One of the best zombie film series out there is the 28 Days Later franchise which to this day only includes the original Danny Boyle film and the stellar follow up 28 Weeks Later.

There has been talk of a third entry in the series, cleverly titled 28 Months Later, but we haven’t heard much about it for years now. That said, today we have an unfortunate update as screenwriter Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Dredd, Ex Machina) hosted a Reddit AMA recently and when a fan asked if there were plans for another film, the answer wasn’t what we all hoped for.

“Kind of,” Garland responded. “But doubt it will ever happen.”

Darn. Personally, as sick as I am of zombie films, I’d still be down for another entry in this series. Especially if original director Danny Boyle came back to helm more rabid mayhem.

We’ll let you know if anything changes in the future, but until then let us know if you’re upset that there will (probably) never be a 28 Months Later.

28 Days Later synopsis:

A group of misguided animal rights activists free a caged chimp infected with the “Rage” virus from a medical research lab. When London bike courier Jim (Cillian Murphy) wakes up from a coma a month after, he finds his city all but deserted. On the run from the zombie-like victims of the Rage, Jim stumbles upon a group of survivors, including Selena (Naomie Harris) and cab driver Frank (Brendan Gleeson), and joins them on a perilous journey to what he hopes will be safety.

Jordan Peele’s Next Genre Movie Begins Shooting Later This Year

Published

on

I’m pretty sure that there aren’t many Jordan Peele haters out there.

The man is not only a brilliant comedian – as showcased in multiple seasons of his sketch comedy series “Key & Peele” but the fact that he has earned Oscar nominations – along with boatloads of cash – for writing and directing his debut horror feature Get Out, make Peele damn-near untouchable.

It is with this in mind that not only the horror community but the world entire are holding their breathe in anticiption of Peele’s next film.

Well, today we have news on just that as Peele recently told THR that his next film will begin shooting later this year.

“I am currently writing it, and I’ll direct for Universal this year,” he said. “I’m just trying to entertain myself again.”

While the writer-director is being tighhtlipped about the details of his new film he did tell the site that the new movie will tonally resemble Get Out.

“One thing I know is that this is genre; and playing around with the thriller, horror, action, fun genre of intrigue is my favorite,” he said. “That’s my sweet spot. So I think tonally it should resemble Get Out. That said, I want to make a completely different movie. I want to address something different than race in the next one.”

Again, I don’t think there are many people out there that aren’t intensely curious about what Peele cooks up next, so we will make sure to keep you guys up to date as word pours in. Until then let us know what you think of Jordan Peele below!

Get Out is nominated for multiple Oscars this year, and we will find out just which categories it wins come March 4, 2018.

BUY GET OUT HERE!

Synopsis:

Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship, but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.

Battle of the Hell Priests: Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s Idea for Hellraiser: Judgment Sequel

Published

on

I think it’s safe to say that many of us were pleasantly surprised by director Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser: Judgment. The film was a fun blast of twisted horror, and Tunnicliffe’s performance as The Auditor was a killer addition to the Hellraiser lore.

But has the director thought about a sequel to his film? Not during shooting evidently.

I had no concept of a sequel, a spinoff, nothing at all,” the director told Screen Rant. “People suggest, ‘Oh, you’re trying to write a sequel for The Auditor and stuff like that.’ It’s like, ‘Are you f***ng kidding?’ I was just trying to swim to the other bank and survive without being eaten by the sharks.”

But now that filming is long over with, Tunnicliffe says he does have some ideas for a sequel.

I have thought about it afterward, what I think would be great fun,” he says. “Maybe a new Cenobite ruler comes in or takes over, and a new head priest comes in, and it’s not working out and clearly this person, this Cenobite’s not doing a great job. And underhandedly, The Auditor is leaving a trail of breadcrumbs for the guy who is Pinhead to find his way back, and he gets pulled in. And then it’s like, he turns up, and it’s like a showdown between the newly born Pinhead and this guy who’s taken over his mantle… we do a bit of a standoff, and it’s like a battle of the Hell priests.

Battle of the Hell priests? Pardon the pun, but Hell, yeah! Would you like to see Tunnicliffe’s Hellraiser sequel? Let us know below!

Hellraiser: Judgment stars Damon Carney, Randy Wayne, Alexandra Harris, Jeff Fenter, Helena Grace Donald, Grace Montie, John Gulager, Diane Goldner, Heather Langenkamp, and Paul T. Taylor as Pinhead.

The film is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital.

Special features:

  • Deleted and extended scenes
  • Gag reel

Synopsis:
The dreaded Pinhead returns in the next terrifying chapter of the classic Hellraiser series. Three detectives trying to stop a diabolical serial killer are sucked into a maze of otherworldly horror, where hellish denizens including the Auditor, the Assessor, and the Jury await to pass judgment.
