District 10 – Is sequel to Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi film underway?

Posted by LiveFor on April 26, 2010

District 9 was one of the highlights of 2009 for me. Great idea, great production and Sharlto Copley was brill in the lead. I know some people didn’t like it but each to their own. I was curious as to whether we would see any sequel to it, but director Neill Blomkamp had said that he was going to be working on different things before he came back to it.

Looks like that could have been misdirection on his part as MarketSaw have news that a sequel is in pre-production (their sources could be wrong, but they are usually on the ball).

DISTRICT 10 (Production title at least) is now in pre-production with filming to start in the October time frame this year. Shooting locations will be South Africa once again as well as New Zealand. There has been no word on whether it will be shot in S3D or not as of yet. You will be the first to know! Peter Jackson is again producing the sequel with Neill Blomkamp directing.

I do hope they are working on a sequel as I am itching to see what happens when the ship comes back.

The same article also mentions that the adaption of Philip Reeves Mortal Engines will be in 3D. Great book. Hope they don’t mess that up.

Do you want a sequel? What do you want to see in it?

    Maybe they could make it so that the aliens who left in the ship return, to find wikus and make him human again? that would seem cool, i think that’s what everyone expects in the remake.

  2. An hour and a half of the aliens bombing earth from orbit.
