Garland is the acclaimed screenwriter behind it Danny Boyle‘s 28 days later and sunshine, as well as Dredd and never let Me Go. He made his directorial debut with the 2014 thriller Ex machina With Domnhall Gleeson, Alicia Vikander and Oscar Isaac before we move on to the science fiction horror movie destruction With Natalie Portman and Isaac.
The Oscar-nominated writer had been planning a new television series about the ineffective and superficial state of protests in recent years, but that idea went out the window after the events of that summer when millions of people around the world headed for the streets in the US Supported Black Lives Matter after death of George Floyd.
“At some point, with civil disobedience, you have to start smashing things. So I wrote about the need to smash things, ”Garland explained. But when he saw the palpable anger that reigned in the streets of big cities and towns, he felt that the series, which had several of Devs’ actors, was unnecessary.

“I thought, ‘What I’m writing now is pointless.’ In the right sense, I was almost happy, weird. ”Then Garland decided to turn to the new horror film.
I’m really relieved to see Garland return to the world of features as it was difficult to get into Devs. He served as the creator, writer, director, and showrunner on the Cerebral series, and while some swore by it, others found the material difficult to penetrate. I watched an episode or two and realized it wasn’t for me. It seems my patience wears off at my age and the days are over when I would take a friend’s word that I just had to give The cable five episodes before it started. The TV landscape is just too competitive these days. You need to address the audience from the start as this second episode is no longer a given.
