Those who have been confirmed to grace the screen are Jodie Comer, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ralph Fiennes, and Jack O’Connell. This ensemble is set to embark on a journey slated to unfold across a planned trilogy.

Over 20 years ago Boyle directed 28 Days Later a post-apocalyptic horror film. The story follows Jim (Cillian Murphy), a bicycle courier who wakes up from a coma to find London deserted and overrun by a highly contagious virus that turns people into violent, rage-filled zombies. As Jim navigates the desolate city, he joins with a group of survivors, including Selena (Naomie Harris) and Frank (Brendan Gleeson). Together, they struggle to survive and search for sanctuary while facing not only the infected but also the dark side of human nature. The 2002 film grossed $82.7 million globally and spawned a sequel, 2007’s 28 Weeks later.

Potential plot details are still under wraps, but the end of the last film, 28 Weeks Later, reveals that the infected had escaped the UK. They are seen running out of tunnels into Paris, France. Therefore, it’s quite possible that we could witness a worldwide pandemic.
