Danny Boyle to direct 28 Months Later?
Oh, Danny boy. You’ve got your Oscar, you’ve made some of the most memorable films of the last fifteen years – why can’t you just leave that bloody zombie series alone?

Eight years after the original film (which was, to be fair, very good) and three years on from Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s adequate sequel, Boyle has confirmed that a third film is in the works, that it may be set in Russia and that he would like to direct it.
