Ever since Neill Blomkamp’s first film, District 9, hit screens four years ago it has become a genre sensation, grossing $210 million at the global box office on a $30 million budget. Fans have been anticipating a follow-up to the movie and the good news is that plans for a sequel are very much in motion, but it might be a while.
In an interview with Wired, Blomkamp revealed that an 18-page treatment exists for District 10, but the only details he would give on the story are that it is “really f*****g cool.” Here comes the bad news though, Blomkamp says he’s not prepared to commit to the sequel, meaning its future is even more uncertain than it was previously.
Also during his interview, Blomkamp revealed that he turned down the possibility of working on a new Star Wars project when Elysium producer Simon Kinberg brought up the subject.
Blomkamp’s new film, Elysium, will be released in theaters on August 9th.
