With Annihilation set to debut on Netflix next month, Ex-Machina director Alex Garland has taken part in an Ask Me Anything Q&A on Reddit, where he was asked the question about the possibility of a further film in the 28 Days/Weeks Later franchise.
Garland wrote the 2002 original, which was directed by Danny Boyle, and then acted as executive producer on the well-received 2007 sequel. A third film, following the Gregorian calendar evolution of titles, was rumoured to be called 28 Months Later, but with almost a decade between films, and with Garland successfully transitioning behind the camera, he has now confirmed that it probably won’t happen.
Asked if he had “any plans for another 28 days/weeks/months/years movie?” Garland responded with “kind of”, which suggests he had ideas, but then punctuated it with “but doubt it will ever happen”.
With zombies (we know they’re not technically zombies) flooding the mainstream, do you even want to see another installment of this franchise? As always, let us know what you think.
