GARLAND TALKS 28 DAYS LATER

28 Days Later is coming June 27th to select US cities after much anticipation. The film brings a new type of zombies to the big screen and writer Alex Garland has alot to say about it....

Sci-Fi talked with 'Alex Garland, writer of the upcoming apocalyptic SF movie 28 Days Later, who told SCI FI Wire that he got the idea from classic British literature, including John Wyndham's Day of the Triffids and the books of J.G. Ballard. 'And also post-apocalyptic films, and actually there's loads of post-apocalyptic literature as well,' Garland said in an interview from his home in London. 'I suppose I'm really thinking of things like Dawn of the Dead and Night of the Living Dead and Omega Man, stuff like that.'

'The independent British film begins in an eerily abandoned London, which has been devastated by a mysterious plague. Danny Boyle directs the story of cycle courier Jim (Cillian Murphy), who awakes from a coma in the apparently deserted city, only to find it inhabited by murderous zombie-like people.'

'There's always been something about post-apocalyptic story that I got a big kick out of,' Garland said. 'Britain at the time was ... very paranoid. It was this paranoid island, and it's more paranoid now. But two and a half years ago, when I started working, it was still paranoid back then. And the thing about the books and films I was just talking about was that I think they were responsive to paranoid times as well.'

'Boyle was interested in a story that commented on what he perceived to be a growing trend of social rage, Garland added. 'According to an argument of Danny's, I think you could say it's getting worse,' Garland said. 'I suppose that I was thinking, as well as just about our sort of generalized intolerance, that there is ... a kind of misperception of how other people are that makes people afraid of other people.' 28 Days Later opens in select U.S. cities on June 27.'
