28 Days Later Header

Ex Machina director Alex Garland has very few titles attached to his name, but is considered one of the best screenplay writers in the business. Most of his works are original, but he did work on both 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later, as a screenwriter for the former and an executive producer for the latter. Of course with the kind of following that the 28 films have produced, fans have been wondering when there would be 28 Months Later.

Now Garland kind of has an answer for that. In an interview, the screenwriter confirms that he has a story idea for the sequel, but adds that he won’t direct or produce. More on this below.

‘BioShock’ Loses Another Director As Juan Carlos Fresnadillo Departs The Production

BioShock Banner

For several years now a movie based on the popular Bioshock video game franchise has been in development. At one point Gore Verbinski (the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies) was in the director’s chair, but couldn’t come to an agreement with the studio about the film’s projected budget and his demand for an R-rating. Verbinski assumed producing duties instead and Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) took over as director. But now it looks like the Spanish filmmaker is no longer involved with the long-gestating Bioshock movie either.

“To be honest, by now, I’m completely out of that, and developing other stuff,” Fresnadillo said in an interview with the Playlist while promoting his latest film Intruders. “Right now it’s on hold. The studio and the videogame company, they have to reach some kind of agreement about the budget and the rating.” Despite the popularity of the Bioshock games the franchise has a very limited fanbase outside the gaming community and wouldn’t necessarily justify the sizable nine-figure budget required to bring the game to life on the big screen. Verbinski looks to be staying on as producer.

A new director has been grabbed for the long-planned remake/reboot of the 1994 cult classic, The Crow, which is best-recognized as the movie that star Brandon Lee was accidentally killed while filming.

Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who’s best-known work is the zombie sequel 28 Weeks Later, has been hired for the job. Fresnadillo was also in the news not too long ago when he was brought in to replace Gore Verbinski on the proposed BioShock video game movie, but that project has fallen apart since then and is now waiting for someone to put it back together.

The movie tells the story of a musician who’s attacked and killed while with his fiancee. He then is brought back to life and seeks vengeance.

BioShock

The ups and downs of turning the instant classic video game BioShock into a successful film adaptation are continuing right along. It’s being reported that Universal has chosen Juan Carlos Fresnadillo to replace Gore Verbinski as director on the movie.

Excitement encased the world of geekdom when it was first revealed that Verbinski would be directing the water-heavy BioShock after his impressive water work on the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy. Verbinski actually stepped away from the proposed fourth Pirates flick in order to helm the challenging video game adaptation. When a swelling price tag ($160 Million) saw the project placed on the back burner in order to figure out a new, more cost-friendly attack strategy, it became apparent that shooting in an overseas location might be the best option. Verbinski, having other projects going on, was unable to meet the scheduling demands, and thus, stepped away.

My Monstrous Militia,
FIDO

Dead, nearly dead, and undead alike rejoice, ’cause it’s that time of the month again. Time take a look the latest group o’ gangrenous guts being gouged from the gullet and strewn about for all to see.

Zombie movies are the new black

Later is Now, Baybah!
In case you had forgotten, 28 Weeks Later opens today and ObZomb (that’s me) says ‘Yes, yehaw, and yahoo!’ I cannot wait to feast my rotting ocular nerves upon what’s sure to be an awesomely good rip ’em up. I’m hoping we’ll get to see glimmers of Robert Carlyle‘s genius turn (IMHO) as Colqhoun in Ravenous show through a bit in 28 Weeks… man, that movie creeped me out!
