It’s been a mere 10 years since the sci-fi classic ‘Attack The Block’ hit the big screen, so what better time to announce that a follow-up is in early development.
Studiocanal and Film4 have confirmed that Nira Park, Joe Cornish, John Boyega & James Wilson have reunited to develop and produce the highly anticipated second film. Cornish will write and direct with John Boyega returning to star as Moses.
Details about the plot are currently being kept under wraps.
Joe Cornish said “I’m thrilled we’re officially announcing our return to the world of ‘Attack The Block’ on the tenth anniversary of the film’s release. I can’t wait to work alongside John again, bringing audiences an even bigger slice of inner-city alien action.”
Boyega added “It’s been a decade since Attack The Block was released and so much has changed since then. I’m excited to see this heightened story return to the streets of London. Moses has remained one of my favourite characters to play and bringing him back is a huge honour.”
The 2011 film followed a group of valiant teenagers who venture out to battle a savage alien incursion. With the invasive species jeopardising their vicinity in Southern London, they fight to succeed in their mission. It featured an ensemble of relatively new, then unknown, actors, including Boyega who has quickly become one of today’s most sought-after young actors. It also starred Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway, and Nick Frost.
The film will be produced by Nira Park and Joe Cornish through Complete Fiction Pictures, the production company recently formed by Park, Cornish, and filmmaker Edgar Wright. John Boyega will produce through UpperRoom Productions.
