One of the best movies of the year is easily Joe Cornish’s sci-fi horror Attack the Block (review), which followed a gang of South London teenagers defending their housing project home against an alien attack.
This afternoon IFC posted an interview with Cornish who revealed that an American remake and television series spin-off are been discussed, and also gave the first details about one of the ideas around an Attack the Block sequel. Could a franchise be in the works? Just to make this happen I’d carry a rotting alien corpse around on my back…
Newcomer star John Boyega, who plays the teenage group leader and chief monster-killer Moses, is also the leader of 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,” said Cornish to press. “He had an image of Moses on a police horse. So he’s on a horse leading this army of South London kids across the river to take on this bigger wave of aliens.”
