Attack the Block director Joe Cornish has said that he hopes the sequel will go into production in 2022.
Talking to comedian Richard Herring on episode 351 of his Leicester Square Theatre Podcast, Cornish said “We’re gonna make it – I hope – next year.”
The topic came up after an audience member asked about what was happening with Attack the Block. Cornish offered no further details.
Earlier this year, it was announced that Cornish and Boyega were reuniting for Attack the Block 2. Cornish will once again write and direct, and Boyega will also produce this time alongside reprising his role as Moses.
Attack the Block is a brilliantly fun B-movie treat, effortlessly combining sci-fi, horror, and British working class stories together. It was highly praised in our review back in 2011. Starring a young John Boyega in the leading role, it’s also a showcase of Jodie Whitaker and Nick Frost’s talents.
