“28 Years Later: Sony Triumphs in Bidding War for Zombie Apocalypse Sequels”

Get ready for an epic trilogy of blood-curdling terror as Danny Boyle and Alex Garland team up once again with Sony as their fearless backer! #28DaysLater

Holy moly, folks! Brace yourselves, because it’s time for some gut-splattering news! The masterminds behind the blood-curdling thriller, 28 Days Later, Danny Boyle and Alex Garland, have joined forces once again to unleash a zombie apocalypse like no other. Get ready for the undead to rise yet again in not just one, but two mind-boggling sequels! With studios frothing at the mouth to secure the rights to these spine-tingling blockbusters, Sony has emerged victorious from the blood-soaked battleground. Let the bidding war begin!

The Showdown:
In a fierce battle between two powerhouses, Warner Bros. and Sony, it was the mighty Sony that triumphed in the end. The Hollywood Reporter spills the not-so-gory details, leaving us guessing about the deal’s specifics. Although each film is expected to have a massive $60 million budget, the negotiations were a real nail-biter. However, we do know one thing – a theatrical release was crucial for Boyle and Garland. After all, you can’t really savor the taste of terror on the small screen, can you?

Sony’s Secret Weapon:
And the secret weapon that led Sony to zombie-infested victory? Tom Rothman! This experienced head honcho, who previously conquered Fox like a horde of undead, has teamed up with Boyle on a whopping eight films in the past. Talk about a match made in horror heaven! With Rothman at the helm, Sony had the brains to snatch up these undead masterpieces.

Behind the Scenes:
While Boyle will be taking charge of the directing duties for the first sequel, he’ll be handing over the reins to another unlucky soul for the follow-up. Rest assured, though, Boyle and Garland won’t be stumbling through the apocalypse alone. They’ve enlisted the help of original producer Andrew Macdonald, Bernie Bellew, and Peter Rice, who was head honcho at Fox Searchlight Pictures during the release of 28 Days Later.

Guess Who’s Back?
Attention all fans of the infected (and those just looking for a new nightmare to obsess over), the one and only Cillian Murphy is joining the team as an executive producer! He might even lend his undead-slaying talents to the film, so watch out for his stunning comeback! Remember how Murphy stunned us all as the guy who woke up from a coma to find himself facing off against hordes of flesh-hungry zombies? Yeah, he’s back, baby!

Fan Reactions:
