• Alex Garland (28 Days Later, Dredd) categorically denies there are any plans for 28 Months Later: “I’m still so proud of 28 Days Later and how well it’s been received over the years so I appreciate that. But in regards to another movie, no, there are no plans for a 28 Months Later or whatever they were calling it. This is a series I’ve always been heavily involved with between the original and the sequel so if there were plans for another movie, I would absolutely know about it.” [Blastr via Dread Central]

• Joss Whedon reveals why he careful about not agreeing to write the Avengers sequel too quickly (NB,we think “business aspect” is a euphemism for, “How much are they going to pay me?” though we could be wrong: “There’s a business aspect to it and I would be disingenuous not to say that, but the question for me is, ‘Do I have another story to tell about these people?’ So we worked on the business side of it and I didn’t think it was going to happen – I was like, ‘I’m never going to do this again.’ But once they worked on the business aspect of it I thought that seems fair and cool, so, the question was, ‘Do I have another thing to say?’ I was in London and I went to a pub and had some fish and chips and a pint and started writing in my notebook. I’m writing. ‘If I was going to do this what would I say?’ and 40 minutes later I filled the notebook. So I texted my agent and said to make the deal. I’m so in love with that universe and the characters and the way they were played, and I have so much more I want to do with them. I know I can’t match the success of the first one but I can try to make a better film, and that’s what I’m excited about – that’s the new room of fear I’m entering now.” [via Co.Create]

• The BBC’s new director general, George Entwistle, has praised Doctor Who in a introductory message to BBC staff. He said he wanted the BBC to be one of the major international media brands with a vibrant presence in many markets built around major pieces of BBC content such as Top Gear, Doctor Who and Dancing With The Stars. In an interview with Radio Times he recalled how he fell in love with television drama as a child while watching Doctor Who with his family. “Jon Pertwee was my Doctor,” he said, “I was a bit sceptical about the Tom Baker regeneration.” [via DoctorWhoNews]
