district 9 sequel When is The District 9 Sequel Coming?

With the help of Peter Jackson and his Weta Workshop, African director Neill Blomkmap came out of nowhere and brought with him a unique and original, Oscar-nominated feature film. That movie of course was District 9 and since its highly talked about release, its critical and financial success, folks have been clamoring for details on when we’ll see District 9 2 (District 10?).

According MarketSaw, it could be as early as this Fall when production begins on District 10. And that’s not all; The report continues to detail that both Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson will be back to direct and produce, respectively.

Neill Blomkamp was the man chosen by Peter Jackson to helm the big budget adaptation of the popular Halo video game franchise and after that was scrapped, they went on to make District 9 instead, based on the Blomkamp short, Alive in Joburg. It went on to bank over $200 million at the worldwide box office and launched the careers of both he and its star Sharlto Copley.

While District 9 worked very well on its own, so many of us are dying to know what happens next. [Spoiler] Will Wikus Van De Merwe get his human form back again? Will Christopher Johnson return seeking vengeance? Will there be a war between the humans and Prawns? Will we see the Prawn homeworld and other species?

District 10 - They're coming back...

There’s so much to explore in the District 9 world and now that it’s a recognizable brand, it’s an opportunity the studio won’t pass up. It’s only a matter of when, and as soon as we find out more, we’ll let you know.

At this point however, we can only take this is as a rumor for two reasons. First, Blomkamp acquired funding and was set to being work on his next project, an untitled sci-fi affair which would again allow him the creative freedom to do with it what he wishes. Secondly, and this may mean nothing, but Sony is denying this report, labeling it as untrue.

Could the other project Blomkamp is working on be what MarketSaw is referring to, and not actually a sequel/prequel to District 9? Either way, I’m excited to see what Blomkamp does next.

What would you like to see from District 10?
