The 28 Days Later Scene You Couldn’t Get Away With Filming Today
Danny Boyle's thriller, “28 Days Later,” takes place in a world where society has collapsed following the outbreak of a lab-born, zombie-esque infection dubbed the "rage virus."
In the movie, the streets of London are now eerily empty, save for when Cillian Murphy's character, Jim, is running for his life or rummaging through buildings for supplies.
Jim spots flyers for missing people scattered all over Piccadilly Circus, but Boyle said on the DVD commentary that he doesn’t think he could film that sequence today.
“We did this before September 11, and to put a bus on its side in Whitehall, just outside Downing Street [...] wouldn't be allowed I don't think,” Boyle said.
