A recent quote from ALEX GARLAND – best known for writing the novel THE BEACH, and scripting the Danny Boyle-directed scifi film SUNSHINE and 28 DAYS LATER. – indicates that a 3rd installment of the zombie-plague movie – possibly called 28 MONTHS LATER – was in developmental hell:
“When we made ’28 Days Later,’ the rights were frozen between a group of people who are no longer talking to each other. And so, the film is never going to happen unless those people start talking to each other again. There is no script as far as I’m aware.”
Despite that, director DANNY BOYLE has indicated that the movie may indeed be moving forward:
“There’s another 28 Days Later in the works.” When asked if the title would be 28 Months Later, Boyle replied “In theory, yes.” Immediately the next question was if he’d be producing, to which Boyle responded, “Actually I want to direct it.”
It seems like only yesterday THRALL WORLD first spotted Natalie Portman in HEAT and BEAUTIFUL GIRLS the former being one of our favorite movies of all time and the latter positioning Portman in ways we had never really considered (due to her age).
Fifteen years later after having taken on a plethora of juicy roles in George Lucas’s prequel STAR WARS trilogy, V FOR VENDETTA, GOYA’S GHOSTS, and BROTHERS – we look forward to seeing her in the upcoming THOR movie as the God of Thunder’s human love interest ( as opposed to his immortal love interest) and Darren Aronofsky’s BLACK SWAN.
And here’s one more to keep an eye out for:
[Natalie] Portman will star in and produce “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies,” a film that is based on the bestselling book written by Seth Grahame-Smith and Austen. Lionsgate will finance and distribute. Quirk Books published the tome.
Though Austen’s name is on the book, Grahame-Smith took the liberty of adding bloodthirsty flesh-eating zombies to the mix.

It is most likely that director Christophe Gans will return as well since he viewed the first Silent Hill as the first in a series of films:
“I prepared myself for six years to do this job, knowing that every fan in the world would wait for me with an axe. I will be sniped when I go to buy my games at my favorite store if I do a bad job. And I understand that, I’m a fan of the game myself…I admire the work of Akira and his friends, and I feel very much like someone who joined the group and tried to transport that amazing piece of art into a different medium.”
