Jodie Comer in talks to star in 28 Days Later sequel?


Jodie Comer is rumored to be in talks to join the cast of Danny Boyle and Alex Garland's '28 Years Later' sequel.

Comer, best known for the TV hit “Killing Eve, will next be seen in Jeff Nichols' "The Bikeriders". She was also stole the show in Ridley Scott’s "The Last Duel".

Oscar winner Cillian Murphy is rumored to be reprising his role from "28 Days Later", but that remains to be confirmed even as the actor himself has teased the possibility.

Murphy is serving as an executive producer on the film though, but story specifics remain tightly under wraps.

"28 Years Later" is said to have a budget of $60 million. No details are known about the plot. The plan is for ‘Years’ to kick off a trilogy of films, all scripted by Garland — Boyle is only set to direct the first one.

In the original film, Murphy played bicycle courier Jim, who wakes up from a coma to find himself in an apocalyptic England that’s overrun by people who have been infected by a rage virus. Boyle and Garland went through several endings for 28 Days Later before landing on the one movie-goers saw in theatres – and that ending was the only one where Jim survived. So he’s still out there, ready to live through another rage virus nightmare 28 years later.
