[News] Filming Has Begun on ’28 Years Later’

Filming has commenced in the north-east for 28 Years Later, the initial installment of a trilogy inspired by the popular 28 Days Later franchise. Jodie Comer, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Ralph Fiennes have been cast as the film’s leads, under the direction of Danny Boyle and a screenplay penned by Alex Garland. Notably,

Northumberland has been chosen as one of the filming locations for this highly anticipated project, as reported by Deadline. Following a brief pause, the filming for Part Two, which will be directed by Nia DaCosta, will commence. Cillian Murphy, who also serves as an executive producer for the first installment of the sequel trilogy, starred as Jim in the original 28 Days Later.

The storyline revolves around Jim waking up from a coma only to discover that society has been ravaged by a deadly virus. This film was a joint effort between director Boyle and writer Garland.

The production team faced the challenge of filming in typically bustling areas like Piccadilly Circus and Westminster Bridge, leaving them with only brief moments in the early mornings, sometimes less than an hour, to capture the essence of desolation.

The production of 28 Years Later involves the collaboration of Boyle and Garland, who join forces once again with the original producing team from 28 Days Later, Peter Rice and Andrew Macdonald of DNA Films. Additionally, Bernie Bellew is also involved in the production process.
