28 Months Later is in trouble

Fox closes production company…

It’s been a good news / bad news kind of day for 28 Months Later.

On the one hand, it’s been officially confirmed by a Variety article, hooray!

But on the other, the article reveals that the production studio responsible for developing it, Fox Atomic, has been shut down, boo!

But this is definitely a glass half-full situation.

Months will be most likely shifted over to 20th Century Fox, who will have much more money to chuck at the project, including an advertising budget bigger than the original two films' shooting costs combined.

However, big studios like big directors, so there is a chance they’ll hire Zack Snyder to controversially make the fast-moving zombies (rage victims, whatever) run in slow-motion, pissing off Danny Boyle and making him vow to never see it. Or something.

      Alfonso Cuaron, yes! I'd love to see some of those gritty, long, hand held shots where blood and dirt gets on the camera lens like in Children of Men. I don't think giving it a bigger budget is neccesarily going to be a good thing though to be honest.

      I agree. Let it be Cuaron because he is the European version of Zak Snyder: style over substance. As shallow as 28 Weeks Later was, he's the only director fitting to kill this franchise once and for all. Too bad, really. 28 Days Later is still brilliant.

      Since when is Mexico a european country? BTW totally agree, Cuaron would make an excellent work (Children of men was incredible, in fact I believe he is the most talented and interesting director among the new mexicans, Inarritu and Del Toro included)

      No one. The second was rubbish compared to the first. It should follow then that by the usual way of working things in Hollywood that the third will be even worse but people will go and see it in the vain hope that this threequel will buck the trend and be good. Sadly this won't be the case and despite how poor the film is, it will still make loads of money and justify number 4,5 and 6. Is there any chance of a Hollywood director having just one original idea??

      No one. Please!!!! let it die. 28 weeks later was an insult to the first one, don't let this sink it even further.

      Don't change the director. It won't even have the same feel to it. I also don't know why people don't like sequels to this movie. It is the most realistic story in a zombie movie that tells different stories of how an epidemic would spread if something like a disease or virus over came humanity. Also as a zombie movie fan this is the most scary because it something like this could spread and kill us. Maybe not zombies but an illness and tjere aren't enough zombie movies.
