'28 Months Later' Update from Alex Garland - May 2015

28 Months Later Update from Alex Garland - May 2015

Alex Garland has been busy promoting his new movie Ex Machina (2015) but has also decided to clue us in on what has been put into motion almost 2 years ago for 28 Months Later. I for one was really shocked to hear the comment. Andrew Macdonald produced both 28 Days Later (2002) and 28 Weeks Later (2007). Alex Garland wrote 28 Days Later… (2002) and executive produced 28 Weeks Later (2007). Read on for what Alex Garland had to say because I do not wan to spoil it for you nor do I want to change his statement. 28 Weeks Later (2007) ended with a very big cliff hanger… now we wait for 28 Months Later!

From Alex Garland:

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 [producer] Andrew [Macdonald] said, ‘Leave it to me.’ So he’s gone off and is working on it.
