With the release of 28 Weeks Later still a month off, we’ve already started to hear about the possibility of a second sequel. While doing press for his upcoming movie Sunshine, Danny Boyle has reportedly been letting it slip that there are tentative plans for another installment in the zombie franchise. I guess as long as the virus can survive in one person (and as long as the movies continue to make money), there’s always that possibility it could mutate and spread somewhere else, right?
Now the interesting thing is that according to a scooper at Ain’t It Cool News, Boyle did some second unit directing on 28 Weeks Later, and had so much fun that he’s “seriously considering” returning to do the next one himself again. Wow, that’s pretty cool. Not only does it get me excited about the possibility of a third movie, but it kind of makes me more interested in seeing the second one now as well. There’s no word on an official title for the potential follow-up, but the logical choice that everyone has adopted is 28 Months Later. The thing is, that’s over 2 years. Seems like a long time for a virus that can infect someone in seconds!
