As many of you may know, John Boyega’s first foray into sci-fi isn’t in The Force Awakens but in a smaller British movie called Attack The Block.
The movie, directed by Joe Cornish, sees aliens attack a South London block of flats and features Boyega as Moses, a young guy who helps his gang defend the inhabitants from the invaders.
And it’s a lot of fun… but here’s the news, Boyega is uniting with Cornish for ‘something new’.
Now, this could be a sequel or something entirely new.
Cornish said in 2011 that Boyega had a big idea for a sequel to Attack the Block that saw the story going much bigger: “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.”
Cornish had, at that time, also said there were plans for a TV show, a sequel and even a prequel.
As for when we’ll even see the two reunite, well Boyega is filming Episode VIII, is set for voicing duties in a Watership Down TV series, will be in Kathryn Bigelow’s Detroit riots movie, starring with Tom Hanks in The Circle and fighting giant monster in Pacific Rim 2, so we’re not holding our breath for this team-up…
Saw Joe Cornish the other day. Yes. We are brainstorming. #somethingnew
