Boyle considers 28 Months Later
Danny Boyle teased us before about how a sequel could start and what direction it might head off in, however now he seems even more confident about it.
In an interview with MTV through Rope of Silicon he says:
"There is an idea for the next one, something which would move [the story] on. I've got to think about it, whether it's right or not...
...I didn't want to do the second one, because I was involved in "Sunshine." But I went out and I helped them [with "28 Weeks Later"]. I did some second-unit shooting on it. And I really enjoyed it, actually. There's something about doing something trashy that's great. Where basically you just come in the door and you just kill them. That was rather refreshing."
That last answer was in response to a direct question on whether he would direct the sequel or not, and that sounds pretty promising indeed.
Is there a need to get Danny Boyle back for a sequel, or has 28 Weeks Later shown that the franchise could go on without him? More pressing is the question of whether or not another film in the franchise is needed, and if it can bring something different to the story. After all, haven't they covered all the angles already?
