** 28 MONTHS LATER: Before he broke through with his directorial debut on EX MACHINA, filmmaker Alex Garland was best known as a screen writer of numerous cult hits including SUNSHINE, 28 DAYS LATER and 28 WEEKS LATER.
In regards to the latter, there have long been rumors of a 'trilogy capper' which would understandably be called 28 MONTHS LATER, though a rights dispute has caused some problems with the film's progression. Garland, out doing promotion for his new sci-fi film ANNIHILATION says he doesn't believe we'll see another film in the series.
He revealed in a recent AMA session that there previously have been 'kind of' plans about where the franchise could go, but right now he says: "[I] doubt it will ever happen". Garland has other work to occupy him in the future including his new eight-episode sci-fi series for FX, and he was also asked in the same session what comic he would like to be involved in a screen adaptation of to which he responded SWAMP THING.

Kirschner told the site in a separate interview that the CHILD'S PLAY TV series is not a reboot, but a continuation of the story.

** John Carpenter on HALLOWEEN: In a recent interview with Rotten Tomatoes, he explains why he came back for this entry:
"You know, you know I talked about the Halloweens for a long time, the sequels — I haven't even seen all of them. I don't even know what really was there — but finally, it occurred to me: Well if I'm just flapping my gums here, talking about it, why don't I try to make it as good as I can? I could offer advice. I could talk to the director. I like the director very much. I like the script. So, you know, stop throwing rocks from the sidelines and get in there and try to do something positive."
Carpenter in the past has been quite vocal about his dislike of remakes of his work and famously slammed Rob Zombie's reboot. The new HALLOWEEN arrives October 19th. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)
