Big news on the block: John Boyega and director Joe Cornish are set to reteam for a sequel to the alien invasion sci-fi action thriller Attack The Block.

John Boyega

Just a couple of months ago Cornish had mentioned that he and Boyega were working on a story, and now we have signs of the project moving forward.

The original film followed a teen gang in south London who set out on a mission to defend their block from the monstrous aliens who invaded the area. Joe Cornish is writing and directing the sequel, and he will produce with Boyega.

Cornish and Boyega are being tight-lipped on the details of the sequel, but Boyega said this in a statement: “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.”

Cornish added, “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.”

The film that put Boyega in the spotlight and led him to star in many blockbuster films including the latest Star Wars trilogy, now he returns to the film that started it all with the sequel. Are you ready Blockheads???
