“Alex Garland and I have a wonderful idea for the third part,” Boyle said. “It’s properly good. The original film led to a bit of a resurgence in the zombie drama and it doesn’t reference any of that. It doesn’t feel stale at all. He’s concentrating on directing his own work at the moment, so it’s stood in abeyance really, but it’s a you-never-know.”
Now this isnt the first time that Boyle has mentioned returning to the franchise —there were rumors as early as 2008 and again in 2015 —but according to him, only recently began having serious discussions about making a new film.
The films have been of such excellent quality that the world might be able to use another one of them in the franchise. Would it be called 28 Months Later? Or 28 Years later? (or should they save that one for a fourth installment?)
