Alex Garland is currently doing the rounds to promote his upcoming Philip K. Dickensian influenced, British science fiction thriller 'Ex Machina', and the inevitable questions have been arises regarding the sequel to '28 Weeks Later,' and whether we can expect to see anything anytime soon. And after years of speculation, it sounds as though things might finally be moving forward on the long awaited finale to the trilogy. Following on from 2003's '28 Days Later' and 2007's '28 Weeks Later', writer and producer, Alex Garland opened up in an interview with IGN regarding what's in store for the franchise.
Here is what Garland had to say:
“We’ve just started talking about it seriously. We’ve got an idea. Danny [Boyle] and Andrew [Macdonald] and I have been having quite serious conversations about it so it is a possibility. It’s complicated. There’s a whole bunch of reasons why it’s complicated, which are boring so I won’t go into, but there’s a possibility.”
It sounds like the boring stuff could be the usual hiccups when trying to get a project into production, such as, scheduling conflicts, financiers and distribution issues. However, the fact that Garland, Boyle and Macdonald have been talking about it is only a good thing. It would also be fitting to see Boyle come back to direct the final part in the trilogy.
Do you want to see a third and (perhaps) final part to complete the Garland/Boyle trilogy?
