Will he or won’t he? That is the question that people have been asking Danny Boyle ever since the release of 2007′s 28 Weeks Later. Will the Oscar winner return to the director’s chair to helm a third installment? Fans of the series have been teetering on “maybe” for years and now Boyle has given us new hope…
According to Dread Central:
Boyle stated, ““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.
Even though the director seems gung-ho about directing the sequel, which is being called 28 Months Later, there may be a snag. According to Worst Previews, they might have some copyright issues to iron out before Boyle can direct anything.
A month ago 28 Days Later writer Alex Garland stated, “The rights were frozen between a group of people who are no longer talking to each other,” he explained. “And so, the film is never going to happen unless those people start talking to each other again.”
The site goes on to say that to their knowledge nothing has been resolved. Maybe Boyle knows something we don’t?
