Joe Cornish Talks Possible ATTACK THE BLOCK Remake, Sequel & TV Spin-Off Ideas

Cornish offered several options to continue the story.

During an interview with IFC at New York Comic Con this past weekend, ‘Attack the Block’ director Joe Cornish revealed that he has been approached about the possibility of continuing the alien invasion franchise with several options, including a sequel, a television series and an American remake.

“We’ve had approaches for a remake and a sequel. We’ve had approaches for a TV show to spin off it. But it’s very early days, you know. So it’s not out of the question but very early days, and I’d certainly like to do something different for my next thing if I get a chance to do a next thing.”

Cornish added that ‘Attack the Block’ star John Boyega has his own ideas about a possible sequel involving his character of Moses.

“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. He had an image of Moses on a police horse. You know the police in London who have those horses they use in riots…somehow Moses has got onto one of those horses. So he’s on a horse leading this army of South London kids across the river to take on this bigger wave of aliens. So yeah it’s really fun to think of stuff like that and what we could do.”
