28 Months Later Is Being Discussed

1 28-Days-LaterIn a new interview with IGN28 Days Later and Dredd screenwriter Alex Garland said that he and 28 Days Later director Danny Boyle have started seriously exploring ideas for 28 Months Later, a follow up to Days and its less-beloved sequel, 28 Weeks Later.

The original film centered on a man who woke up from a four-week-long coma to find London overrun by fast-moving zombies. The second film dealt with the fallout of the rest of Europe "quarantining" England when the outbreak occurred.

A BOOM! Studios comic book series based on 28 Days Later was a bit hit for the publisher, around the time of the second film's release.

“We’ve just started talking about it seriously,” said Garland. “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.”

Garland said he will most likely not write the script, but serve as an executive producer, making his role the same as it was on 28 Weeks Later.
