Neill Blomkamp exploded on the scene in 2009 with his gritty sci-fi feature District 9, which was released to critical and commercial praise. Since then, we’ve waited four years to see the director’s sophomore effort, now a mere few weeks away. The film, Elysium, opens August 9. After that, he’ll make a movie called Chappie.
All that time, fans have been clamoring to see a continuation of the world Blomkamp created in District 9. The writer/director has said it was something he was interested in, it simply hasn’t all come together yet. In a new interview, Blomkamp gives his most significant update yet on the sequel, tentatively called District 10. He’s co-written an 18-page treatment for the sequel with his wife/partner Terri Tatchell which he describes as “really f***ing cool.”
