Attack the Block Could Get a Sequel, American Remake, or TV Series

14 October 2011 6:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

"[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. »
