“District 9” sequel script in the works

Filmmaker Neill Blomkamp has confirmed that he and writing partners Sharlto Copley and Terri Tatchell are in the process of penning the screenplay “District 10,” the long-awaited follow-up to South Africa’s biggest box office hit “District 9”.

Blomkamp in a tweet earlier today said: “District 10 screenplay also being written by @sharlto (Sharlto Copley) @territachell (Terri Tatchell) and I. It’s [sic] coming…”.

The original film grossed $211 million worldwide and received four Academy Award nominations, including best picture and original screenplay. Rumors of a sequel have swirled since the first film’s release.

Blomkamp most recently shot the horror film “Demonic” which AGC has started screening. He was scheduled to shoot the Taylor Kitsch-led “Inferno” but the pandemic upended those plans.
