Jodie Comer, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Ralph Fiennes to star in 28 Years Later

Way back in 2002, audiences were left feeling terrified after being introduced to Danny Boyle’s cult zombie horror 28 Days Later.

Shot on a small budget, the film starred recent Oscar winner Cillian Murphy as a bicycle courier who wakes up from a coma to a post-apocalyptic Britain ravaged by a deadly virus.

After the mixed success of its sequel 28 Weeks Later (2007), the series looked to have been done and dusted.

However, the intense story is set to continue in the form of a new trilogy, fittingly entitled 28 Years Later and starring three of the UK’s biggest actors.

After surviving a post-flooded Britain in this year’s The End We Start From, BAFTA and Emmy-winning actress Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, The Last Duel) will headline the first film alongside Golden Globe winner Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Nowhere Boy, Nocturnal Animals) and Oscar nominee Ralph Fiennes (Schindler’s List, Harry Potter series).

While plot and character details are vague, Boyle is set to direct the opening installment and serve as producer alongside original writer Alex Garland, and Cillian Murphy himself. However, it is not yet known whether Murphy will make an appearance in the new film.

Additionally, it is understood that Nia DeCosta (Candyman, The Marvels) will helm the second film of the planned trilogy.

From a personal perspective, here’s hoping Jodie can come out of this apocalypse unscathed too!
