When is The District 9 Sequel Coming?

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?

  1. When i started watching district 9 i was going to change the channel and then all of a sudden i could not change the channel. Great movie Peter Jackson. Please make part 2.

    • I was like that too at the beginning but quickly changed my mind. It starts off very slowly buy picks up pace after 30 min. Must see movie, can’t wait to see the next movie. So many unanswered questions….

    • 3 years have passed,and still nothing….

      • I suppose they got held up in hyperspace. or their wormhole collapsed..

      • But just like Christopher Johnson said. “In three years. I promise”. He will return because I believe him.

      • To hell with this Blomkamp guy he deserves a good kick up the ass for how he’s handled all this. WE WANT A SEQUEL BUT THIS HALFWIT JUST KEEPS SCREWING AROUND WASTING TIME ON GARBAGE PRODUCTIONS.


    • Everyone here in dallas wonna know wtf happens next! !

  2. Last try controllers.

    You out there,do you think our friends ‘The Prawns’ would like SPAM?
    Me thinks these controllers on this site would have plenty of it to feed them when and IF they return.

    How ’bouts it Mr. Blomkamp:please bring them back and feed them all the SPAM they can handle,courtesy of this site and its controllers.

  3. We need distric 10, please dont let us down.

  4. SPAM EH ? we love it in Hawaii and we want to see District 10.
    I watched it last night on AMC and could’nt put it down, I buzzed thru the advertisements and liked all of the flick. Personally, I think it’s better than “Falling Skies” on Turner Network Television. WE WANT DISTRICT 10…..please give us another great SIFI
    Aloha from Hawaii..

  5. I want to see the aliens come back with 30 ships and completely DOMINATE the human population, fix him up, and make MNU their BEE EYE TEE CEE AECHH

  6. I’m really looking forward to seeing the new District 9. I’ll be back for you in 3 years… Great movie!

  7. I’m really looking forward to seeing the new District 9. I’ll be back for you in 3 years!

  8. When they come back they shell want revenge but the main guy should convince them to stop the attack to human race and on the way to this process should be made nearly impossible to do. More emotion, more anger, more violence, more gang leaders and more weaponry can make District 10 a must not miss and prawns son should still be there, script ideas can be provided.

  9. Soo are we gonna get it this year i mean its been 3 years. . .??

  10. ive bin waiting for the sequel..but pls dont change the title..

    • Incredible movie please make sequel great production on everything there’s no other movie like this,alien nation.

  11. I think when the prawns return to earth with lots of ships, it is because they want to rescue all the prawns left behind and take them back to their planet and leave earth. the problem would be the military of earth reacted as a threat when they saw all those ships and thought it as an invasion. The main character goes with them to be cured but in the middle of it all something happens to him, like lets say he wants to get his wife but can’t for some reasons or secret organization stuff that wants him or his DNA or something for further study. I’m not good with story lines and sorry for bad English… this is just my prediction and not at all the real thing.

    • The alien’s that were on Earth all fit in one ship. They wouldn’t need that many to rescue them. They’re obviously attacking for revenge. Making your entire assumption wrong. According to the picture anyways, if it’s even real.

  12. How about this, no one asks these unanswered questions that should have been explained by Christopher the prawn to the guy who was mutating into a prawn. Now, Christopher said that black fluid he made out of those scavenged canisters of green goo was fuel for the shuttle to get back into the mother ship. But when Wilkus found the silver tube of fuel he managed to spray a little bit into his face, but how in the heck did that turn him into a prawn himself? Why and how did the mothership end up on Earth? What was wrong with the prawns when they first arrived? And why did it take 3 months after the mothership had arrived for it to show any activity? These unanswered question kinda suck. Anyone have any ideas on these?

    • Oh my! i totaly forgot about that black thing.

      Prawns look like insectoid reptiloids….

      That black slimy parasite again?

      Specefic heat conditions, Unstopable mutation!

      Guess where else we see similar behaviour with black slimy oily pathogen.

      X-files: fight the future, Prometheus (alien 0), Extermination (2001 ps2 video game).

      And now we have synthia messing with Crude oil in Gulf of mexico since 2010!

      Would it have been possible that Crude oil holds a Prehistoric Pathogen that would have killed all dinosaurs? Synthia synthetic man made bacteria purpose is to rebuild any missing genomes on any organism it is mixed with, Then synthia assume control over that entity.

      Venter the crazy scientist behind this. Kinda make you feel like resident evil. Maybe the Umbrella Coorporation is real after all!

      • Um crude oil is basically made from rotted dinosaur carcasses…..

        • HAHAHA!

          no crude oil is asumed to be made from carbon decomposed from organic mater.. But not from dinosaur bones.

          Even the oldest dinosaurs bones found have stil their full strenght of material. Archeiologist even discovered old blood dryed inside the spine.

          I used to beleive what we are told in school… but its all lies.

          • oil can be from different things but it is carbon that is stuck under stuff and keeps getting pushed down until it becomes oil

  13. I think the little guy(son) is the brains of the whole bunch.He should lead the rescue,of the aliens.

  14. This a very good movie and l have been waiting for the second one please don’t make us wait to long l would the promise made kept by the prawns.

  15. the ONLY thing I want them to do is keep the inter species interaction going so we find out more about their culture rather than what most movies do and turn the aliens into the faceless bad guys that we just need to kill.

    the are SOOO many possibilities to explore.

    cant wait

  16. After I saw this movie in the cinema, I watched it again on TV, and just watched again last night on TV, 3 times in total and I still love it! I never watch any movie more than 2 times but this one. It’s the best one and was the only movie that I’m looking forward to see what happen next, it really stuck my mind.

  17. In recent years, the tabloids exploited a truth about the aliens: Human women known to have sex with male aliens, found themselves aging much slower. Aliens were now being abducted to extract their sperm to make anti-aging elixirs. The mothership returns to find their highest in command missing. They discover that the missing alien is in Nigeria being held captive; milked for is precious essence. Wikus, now a fully formed alien, knows where to find him. The visiting aliens have destroyed half of South Africa in retaliation.

  18. this and avatar go up top for best alien films of 2009

  19. Eagerly waiting for District 10 or District 9 part 2..whatever.
    The highly original script where Vander Merwe gets sprayed with the genetic material that turns him into a prawn is like no other alien plot I have ever seen. Not even in the Alien Series (Ridley Scott. So, it would be the perfect end to District 10 for him to receive his human form back and to be an advocate for the prawns bringing peace and resolution to both societies. So, guys….come one let get to work on it…We are waiting….please!

  20. Come sooon we are waiting from the movie

  21. I been waiting for the sequel for tooo long !!!

  22. Loved it awesome, can’t wait for district 10 thank you* Bryan.

  23. what if this is the story of the African race around the world the movie was shot when actual people where being moved just like the prawn. so wake up people the war aint against aliens it against races of color

  24. don’t leave us in middle of no where waiting for sequel llllllllllllllllllll

  25. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both
    equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the
    head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I’m very happy that I came across this in my search for something concerning this.

  26. still waiting for sequel of district -9 also DREDD 2


  28. Waiting for district 10!
