28 Weeks Later Debuts in London
Monday, April 30, 2007 - reddit
I wasn't really looking forward to 28 Days Later, but that zombie flick really did win me over. It really didn't try to break the reigns of the genre or invent new ways to tell zombie stories, it didn't really try to do anything other than be a good zombie flick.
The sequel, 28 Weeks Later, won't feature the same cast as the first film, but it still figures to be a pretty fun time. 28 Weeks Later opens on May 11th in the United States.
Exec producer Danny Boyle, director of "28 Days Later," handpicked Fresnadillo to direct the sequel and was on hand to unveil "28 Weeks." Scenes were shot at the crack of dawn on Shaftesbury Avenue and the new Wembley soccer stadium to deliver the appropriately eerily empty feel.
Lets just hope they haven't jumped the shark.
