28 Months Later isn’t an impossibility, but there certainly aren’t any plans for it right now. 28 Days Later, Sunshine and Trance director Danny Boyle recently spoke to Wired and he seemed fairly uninterested in pursuing the series – saying that there’s a only 40/60 chance of it getting made.
“ Who would have thought? I don’t like zombie movies. I never did. We took a genre and fucked with it. Zombie aficionados, they’re quite precious with all their rules. Like with running: “They don’t do that!” Of course there are so many manifestations of zombies now, the rule book has gone out the window. I saw one episode of The Walking Dead, and it was very gripping. But the zombies were stumbling around again, which I hate. Given what we’ve just been talking about, it’s very difficult to know whether zombies are overexposed now as a concept. So it’s 40/60 whether it happens or not.”
Lest you despair, it’s not completely off the table. “But we did have an idea of where to set it and what it might be about.”
Still, you know – probably not.
