After a long and fierce competition with Warner Bros., Sony has acquired the rights to “28 Years Later,” the sequel to the well-known 2002 horror classic “28 Days Later.”
Behind the project will be the creators of the original film, director Danny Boyle and screenwriter Alex Garland, who are planning to create another zombie movie. Boyle will direct the first part, while Garland will write the screenplay for the second part.
Cillian Murphy, who played the lead role in the first film, will reportedly return as one of the main characters, which has generated a lot of excitement among fans. However, this information has not been verified, so we will have to wait for official confirmation. However, if that doesn't happen, he will oversee the first installment as an executive producer.
“28 Days Later” was a film that revitalized the zombie genre by introducing the idea of a virus that turns people into violent maniacs.. The film was a huge success at the box office and at the box office, spawning a sequel titled 28 Weeks Later.
