Alex Garland States That ’28 Months Later’ Concept Is Written But He Won’t Participate Further

Director/writer Alex Garland is heavily promoting his latest film Ex Machina, the sci-fi/thriller that stars Domhnall Gleeson and Oscar Isaac. However, during a recent interview, Garland let out that the long-awaited 28 Months Later is still something that is brought up and might currently have some forward momentum.

In an interview with Indiewire, Garland states:

About two years ago, Danny started collaborating on the potential to make ‘Trainspotting 2,’ another sequel. In that conversation, an idea for ’28 Months’ arrived. I had a funny idea. I had a sort of weird idea that popped into my head. Partly because of a trip I’d taken. I had this thought, and I suggested it to Andrew and Danny, but I also said I don’t want to work on it. I don’t really want to play a role, and Andrew said, ‘Leave it to me.’ So he’s gone off and is working on it.

Discussing the wait for the third film, Garland explains:

The rights to ‘28 Days’ were frozen, effectively, because they were shared between Danny [Boyle], [producer] Andrew [McDonald], myself, and Fox. After the second one, none of us really wanted to do another. Fox may or may not have, I don’t know.

No further details have been released. We’ll be keeping a very close eye on this situation.
