Boyle To Direct '28 Months Later'
Here's some pretty interesting news concerning the second sequel to 28 Days Later...
Danny Boyle wants to hang with some less-lively folks. Again.
The filmmaker, who recently completed the promising-looking "127 Hours", is said to be keen on directing a second sequel to zombie epic "28 Days Later".
Dread Central reports, "for those wondering, this news has come from Boyle himself. The director indicated to a good friend of our site that "there's another 28 Days Later in the works." When asked if the title would be 28 Months Later, Boyle replied "In theory, yes." Immediately the next question was if he'd be producing, to which Boyle responded, "Actually I want to direct it." There you have it, kids. From the horse's mouth."
I don't believe we've heard anything on the third "28 days" movie since late 2008 - see below :
Seems Danny Boyle was - excuse the pun - dead serious when he said he'd like to do a sequel (well, it'd be the second sequel; but as Boyle didn't helm the first sequel, this'd be his first) to "28 Days Later" and "Trainspotting". Though he's mentioned both projects in a 'Maybe if I get time, I'll do them one day' sense previously, his interest in both seems to have increased in recent weeks.
The British filmmaker, out spruiking his acclaimed new pic "Slumdog Millionaire" (which I've yet to catch), tells Australia's The Herald Sun that he's got a wild idea for a second "28 Days" follow-up and it'd be up to Twentieth Century Fox and whether or not it gets made.
The new film would probably set in Russia.
"I have an idea for that but it's a very, very weird idea and I don't know whether it would fulfill all the things you have to fulfill for a franchise", says Boyle. "But you can be sure you won't say : 'Oh, it's just a sequel'.
Boyle says he's also officially developing the oft-rumoured sequel to "Trainspotting", the curiously-titled "Porno".
Boyle says of the film, which would take place years after the original film, "It would concentrate on them being middle-aged and having left behind all the party times. It'd be very different. As they confront middle aged... could be very boring really!".
