It’s been a long time since last we heard anything regarding the sequel to both 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later, but just like that! Boom! There’s news to report!
IGN caught up with screenwriter Alex Garland, who had this to say about the possibility of a new chapter in the beloved franchise.
“We’ve just started talking about it seriously. We’ve got an idea. Danny [Boyle] and [producer] Andrew [Macdonald] and I have been having quite serious conversations about it so it is a possibility. It’s complicated. There’s a whole bunch of reasons why it’s complicated, which are boring so I won’t go into, but there’s a possibility.”
As for the title timeline…
“It’s more likely to be 28 Months than 28 Years,” he revealed. “28 Years gives you one more place to go. 28 Decades is probably taking the piss,” he jokes.
