The latest film from Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle is in production and filming across the north east of England.

28 Years Later is the long-anticipated, post-apocalyptic sequel to the 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later films and is slated for release next year.

Film crews have been seen in Newcastle, Kielder Forest and, most prominently, on Holy Island for the past three weeks.

Hundreds of people from the local area responded to a call for extras to play a hoard of rage-filled ‘zombies’ in crowd scenes on the island.

“I always think it’s good when they use local areas for stuff, also it brings more tourists to the island,” said Debra Gibbons, who was surprised to discover the filming when out for a walk on Holy Island.
