    A third movie in the "28 [Timeframe of Choice] Later"zombie infected franchise has been discussed for so long, Moviefone had a story back in 2008 called"Danny Boyle Considers Directing '28 Months Later.'"It's sure as heck been more than 28 months since that plan, but maybe the issue was that no one had a good idea for another sequel. Until now.

    We still don't know the idea, but Alex Garland -- who wrote "28 Days Later" (2002) and had a distant connection to "28 Weeks Later" (2007) -- told Indiewirea third movie is moving forward with producer Andrew McDonald, based on an idea Garland came up with himself. "About two years ago, Danny started collaborating on the potential to make 'Trainspotting 2,' another sequel," Garland said. "In that conversation, an idea for '28 Months' arrived. I had a sort of weird idea that popped into my head. Partly because of a trip I'd taken. I had this thought, and I suggested it to Andrew and Danny, but I also said I don't want to work on it. I don't really want to play a role, and Andrew said, 'Leave it to me.' So he's gone off and is working on it."

    Awesome. No further details were shared, but it's good to hear that 1) they waited for a worthy idea and 2) a key producer is on board to deliver. Hopefully Danny Boyle decides to come back to direct this one, and we wouldn't say no to an appearance from Cillian Murphy. The undead are more popular than ever -- thanks in part to AMC's "The Walking Dead," which launched in 2010 -- so hopefully this movie moves as fast as the "28 Days" infected and does not shuffle slowly like

    Just watched 28 weeks last night! I hope the next one is better than that turd.
    Why the fuck didn't they teach those people to run with their hands up so that the snipers didn't shoot them?

    Sounded like it would never happen. If Boyle is involved it will be awesome.

    28 years later would be a cool 4th.
