28 Years Later: Danny Boyle and Alex Garland Reunite for Highly Anticipated Zombie Horror Sequel

London, UK – A highly anticipated sequel to the zombie horror film “28 Days Later” is reportedly in the works, according to anonymous sources in the industry. Titled “28 Years Later,” the film will mark the third installment in the franchise, following the original film released in 2002 and its sequel, “28 Weeks Later,” which was released in 2007.

The new film will bring back director Danny Boyle and writer Alex Garland, who directed and wrote the first film and served as executive producers on the second. It will also be the first in a new trilogy. The project is expected to be shopped around to studios, streamers, and other potential buyers in the coming days.

Boyle will once again take on the role of director, while Garland will be responsible for writing all three films. The budget for each film is set at around $75 million, a considerable increase from the original film’s $8 million budget. “28 Days Later” was a critical and commercial success and helped launch the career of actor Cillian Murphy.

The film follows the story of a bicycle courier who wakes up from a coma to find himself in a post-apocalyptic UK, ravaged by a virus that turns people into aggressive zombies. “28 Days Later” is often credited with revitalizing the zombie horror genre and introducing the concept of fast-moving, terrifying zombies.

Rumors of a third installment in the franchise have been circulating since the release of “28 Weeks Later” in 2007. Over the years, both Boyle and Garland, along with Murphy and co-star Imogen Poots, have expressed interest in continuing the story. However, no actors have been officially attached to the upcoming film.

As fans eagerly await the release of “28 Years Later,” the film promises to bring back the intense horror and thrilling action that made the franchise a success. With the original creative team back on board and a larger budget, the third installment has the potential to deliver an even more impactful and terrifying experience for audiences worldwide.
