Alex Garland directing 'Ex Machina' Collected

Garland, who is returning to horror after a long hiatus, has previously written the screenplay of modern classic 28 Days Later

Ex Machina and Annihilation director Alex Garland was working on a TV show, “tackling the ineffectual and surface-level state of protests in recent years,” which felt "redundant" in the current political climate.

The director is now returning to cinema and writing a UK based low budget horror film.

“I wrote a low-budget horror movie, set in the UK. I don’t know if it’s unrealistic or not. Always at this particular moment, a film always feels unrealistic, but then somehow it works out,” ,” Garland told Empire magazine.

According to reports, financing and casting are still in the works and the production is set to begin in the spring or summer of 2021.

“At some point with civil disobedience, you have to start smashing stuff up. So I was writing about the need to smash stuff up,” Garland said about his discarded TV project. But the Black Lives protests have spread across America in 2020, which discouraged him from starting a series on this subject.

He added, “I thought, ‘So now what I’m writing is pointless.’ In a good way. I almost felt weirdly glad.”

Garland is returning to horror after a long hiatus. Previously he wrote the script of the iconic 28 Days Later.
