28 Months Later in doubt

28WeeksLater.jpg28 Months Later, the sequel to 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later, was in pre-production over at Fox Atomic it seems, but the bad news is just as the label starts to make some headway, 20th Century Fox are shutting it down.

The hope is that both I Love You, Beth Cooper and Jennifer's Body will make it to the cinema despite the fact that the production label that helped create them will be long gone by their expected release dates.

However it doesn't look as bad as it first seems as the head of Fox Atomic, Debbie Liebling, is returning to 20th Century Fox to develop the same projects she has been for Fox Atomic according to the story in Variety today, and that presumably means that the existing films will head there too.

The article says that the main reason the label is being wound down is that they didn't produce enough successful films, some of their biggest being Turistas and 28 Weeks Later.

There's also the fact that the man who created the label, Peter Rice, is now off running Fox Broadcasting for Rupert Murdoch.

There were three films coming out of the label this year, The Post Grad Survival Guide starring Alexis Bledel, Michael Keaton, Rodrigo Santoro and Jane Lynch; I Love You, Beth Cooper starring Hayden Panettiere, and Jennifer's Body the horror from the pen of Diablo Cody starring Megan Fox, Amanda Seyfried, Adam Brody and J.K. Simmons.

The hope is that these films continue with 20th Century Fox and that we still get a chance to see them, especially as these marked the biggest films that the label had set to release.
