Attack the Block has built up a devoted fan base since its theatrical release in late July, with many "Blockheads" already asking for a sequel. Director Joe Cornish revealed there are several ideas in play for a follow-up, one of which comes from star John Boyega. Here's what Joe Cornish had to say about John Boyega's Attack the Block sequel idea.
Attack the Block may continue with a sequel, remake, or TV series
"[He] keeps coming up with amazing ideas. He has this image of a bigger alien attack on London, as if the attack we saw in Attack the Block
was just the [first] wave and there's another wave of bigger creatures. And he described to me this image of Moses leading a whole army of hood kids across the Thames, next to the houses of Parliament. No, his image was even better. He had an image of Moses on a police horse. You know the police in London who have those horses they use in riots...somehow Moses has got onto one of those horses. So he's on a horse leading this army of South London kids across the river to take on this bigger wave of aliens. So yeah it's really fun to think of stuff like that and what we could do."
Joe Cornish also indicated there have been discussions about not only a sequel, but an American remake and a TV series as well.
"We've had approaches for a remake and a sequel. We've had approaches for a TV show to spin off it. But it's very early days, you know. So it's not out of the question but very early days, and I'd certainly like to do something different for my next thing if I get a chance to do a next thing."
If you didn't get a chance to see Attack the Block in theaters, the alien invasion adventure debuts on Blu-ray and DVD October 25.
Attack the Block was released July 29th, 2011 and stars Nick Frost, Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway, John Boyega, Adam Leese, Joey Ansah, Flaminia Cinque, Chris Wilson. The film is directed by Joe Cornish.
