The Contaminated will return 22 years after the release of the film starring Cillian Murphy. A perfect way to celebrate the anniversary of this iconic feature film.

A sequel without Cillian Murphy

28 years later Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Jodie Comer, Ralph Fiennes and Jack O’Connell wear it. Years in the planning, this sequel will finally see the light of day and will consist of three new films. If Cillian Murphy While no casting has been announced for this third opus, the actor is still an executive producer.

According to an insider, the Irish actress – who recently won an Oscar for her role in Oppenheimer – is set to film 28 Years Later 2 by Nia DaCosta and star in 28 Years Later 3… What if Danny Boyle and Alex Garland want to stay in sync with this hexalogy? The final installment is due out in 2031, 28 years after the first feature film.

After 28 days

Filming will begin in May

In the 2003 film, the Animal Protection Commando rescued dozens of chimpanzees who had been subjected to horrific experiments. But as soon as they are freed, primates infected with a mysterious virus attack their “saviors” and kill them. After 28 days, the disease spread like lightning, mass evacuation of the population was carried out. A few survivors go into hiding to escape the violence-hungry “tainted”. It is in this context that Jimmy, the courier, comes out of a deep coma. With a budget of $8 million, the feature film, which featured Cillian Murphy, grossed $84 million at the international box office.

Four years later, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directed a sequel, 28 Weeks, which took place 6 months after the events of the first opus. The American army arrives in England destroyed by the virus and tries to restore civilization in London. Robert Carlyle takes over from Cillian Murphy and the work also scored well at the worldwide box office: $65 million for a $15 million budget.

After 28 years, filming has just begun in the northern English county of Northumberland.
