28 Days Later threequel CONFIRMED by Danny Boyle ‘It’s properly good’

Back in 2002, Boyle directed the iconic zombie apocalypse movie 28 Days Later. The horror was followed up five years later by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s 28 Weeks Later, which saw the virus spreading from the UK to mainland Europe in the film’s cliffhanger ending. Ever since fans have wondered if there will be a 28 Months Later or even a 28 Years Later. And now Boyle has confirmed a third movie is in the works.

Speaking with The Independent to promote his new movie Yesterday, Boyle said: “Alex Garland [the original film’s screenwriter] and I have a wonderful idea for the third part. It’s properly good.

“The original film led to a bit of a resurgence in the zombie drama and it doesn’t reference any of that.

“It doesn’t feel stale at all. He’s concentrating on directing his own work at the moment, so it’s stood in abeyance really, but it’s a you-never-know.”

But will the movie be 28 Months Later or 28 Years Later? Well, Garland gave a clue a few years ago.

Speaking with IGN in 2015, Garland said: “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.

“It’s more likely to be 28 Months than 28 Years. 28 months gives you one more place to go.”

By the sounds of it, this would leave room for a fourth movie to be called 28 Years Later.

Boyle, who left directing duties on Bond 25 over “creative differences”, has backed Robert Pattinson for the next 007.

The filmmaker was recently watching the Twilight star in High Life when he had the realisation.

He said: “And it was so bizarre because I was sitting there thinking, ‘oh my God, they should get him to be the next Bond’”.

Asked if the 33-year-old was too young, Boyle was adamant this wasn’t the case.

He replied: “No, no. He must be in his 30s. How old was Connery? He’s ready now.”
