Per Deadline, O’Connell has been tapped to join Jodie Comer (Free Guy, The Last Duel), Aaron Taylor-Johnson (The Fall Guy, Kraven the Hunter), and Ralph Fiennes (Harry Potter, The Grand Budapest Hotel) in 28 Years Later.

A sequel to 2002’s 28 Days Later and 2007’s 28 Weeks Later, 28 Years Later is being directed by Danny Boyle and written by Alex Garland. It is the first film that is part of a brand-new planned trilogy.

According to Deadline, O’Connell will play a supporting character in 28 Years Later who will have a larger role in the second film, which is being directed by Candyman’s Nia DaCosta.
