‘Attack the Block’ Could Get a Sequel, American Remake, or TV Series

Attack the Block may continue with a sequel, remake, or TV seriesAttack the Block has built up a devoted fan base since its theatrical release in late July, with many "Blockheads" already asking for a sequel. Director Joe Cornish revealed there are several ideas in play for a follow-up, one of which comes from star John Boyega. Here's what Joe Cornish had to say about John Boyega's Attack the Block sequel idea.

"[He] keeps coming up with amazing ideas. 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. No, his image was even better. 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."

Joe Cornish also indicated there have been discussions about not only a sequel, but an American remake and a TV series as well.

"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."

If you didn't get a chance to see Attack the Block in theaters, the alien invasion adventure debuts on Blu-ray and DVD October 25.

Attack the Block was released July 29th, 2011.

              Although I haven't seen it, I don't think this needs a sequel. I like the idea of an American remake, considering Matt Reeves and J.J Abrams would be great for the project, but I hate the idea of a TV series-that'll suck.

                They should have the sequel take place in America. Problem solved.

                Most horror sequels are just remakes of the first one anyway.

                      @bawnian-dexeus well...lets just say that it is very unique. The aliens are pretty cool looking and the gore is top notch. I was actually surprised at how much i enjoyed it.

                                  It was alright...pretty fun flick but doesn't deserve all the 'hype' it's getting.

                                          @thrashnasty190 its one of the years best. brilliant f*cking movie. I've seen it like ten times! can't wait to get the blu ray!

                                          I'm fine with either a sequel or an american remake. I've actually visualized an american remake in my head, and If done right, it could be really good.
