Boyle Working on 28 Months Later?

Danny Boyle working on new 28 movie?It’s nothing we’ve not heard before (most recently during “>Comic-Con); it’s just been a while since it was mentioned. Danny Boyle got to chatting with the hip cats over at MTV’s Movie Blog and revealed that yes, he does have an idea for another film set in his 28 Days Later universe. While most will likely roll their eyes, Boyle is being realistic about it…

“I have an idea for it, [but] I’ve got to present it and see what people think really because it might be silly really.” We certainly don’t want silly, especially after so many people complained that silliness (i.e., the father always finding his kids) is what ruined 28 Weeks Later.

Nothing more was revealed as to what the film may be about or where it’d be set, but given the conclusion of 28 Weeks, we could be looking at a much larger sequel if it does happen. Keep it here for updates!

    Yeah cause it’s not like a viral infection caused by rage needed suspension of disbelief, right?

    • Terminal

      Shut the fuck up, Donny. 😛

  • PelusaMG

    Father finding family in “28 Weeks Later” = Shark finding Ellen Brody in “Jaws: The Revenge”… Very, very silly!

    • Terminal

      YES. It undermined the entire rage virus concept. He survived all throughout the movie? Insult my intelligence more.

  • Terminal

    Weeks was candy coated crap that held our hands through everything. “Days” may be derivative but it’s smarter.

    • G.D.

      You’re kidding, right?

      • Messiahman

        No, he’s not kidding. And he’s completely right.

        WEEKS is awful.

        • G.D.

          Wow, now you’re kidding too? Seems like an awful long way to go for a really obvious joke…

      • Terminal

        No, but I didn’t watch “Weeks” through bouts of hash, so I may be missing a key ingredient to its enjoyment.

    • RingoJ

      I think you hit the nail on the head pretty well.

  • Sirand

    Days still holds up, but it becomes WAY too derivative of Day of the Dead in the final act. I prefer Weeks.

    • The Woman In Black

      Yeah, the soldier stuff in Days really didn’t do it for me. Weeks is a much better overall experience I’d say — although I do still cry every time Frank gets taken out in Days.

      • Terminal

        Because it’s faster and louder and added nothing to the mythos. It didn’t even follow continuity properly, nor did it settle down long enough to tell a story. Days may be derivative in the last thirty minutes, but those thirty minutes are disturbing, horrifying and features incredible direction, while the direction in “Weeks” varied from eye catching to flat. People rely on that argument about “Day of the Dead” derivations, but “Days” took that derivation and made it their own, period. “Weeks” copied the eye gouging scene from “Days” horribly.

  • Kryten Syxx

    For action, Weeks is #1. For a better movie as a whole, Days has an equal balance of everything.

  • G.D.

    I liked Weeks on par with Days, but I recently watched Weeks again and happened to miss the goofy parts with the goofy father “stalking” bits, and I liked it more than Days.

  • Mephistopheles

    The father bit did require a bit of suspension of disbelief, but it didn’t ruin 28 Weeks for me.
