EXCLUSIVE:The aliens are again on the block.

Within the unique, Moses mobilized his mates towards a bunch of nasty extraterrestrials seeking to take over their neighborhood. Joe Cornish is writing and directing the sequel, and he’ll produce with Boyega (by way of his UpperRoom Productions banner), Nira Park (by way of the brand new Full Fiction banner she has fashioned with Cornish and Edgar Wright) and James Wilson. The 4 teamed to make the unique movie.

Plot of the sequel stays underneath wraps.

Boyega is coming off a celebrated flip within the Steve McQueen-directed BBC/Amazon Prime drama Small Axe, and earlier than that enjoying Finn within the Star Wars movies, but it surely was the 2011 flip in Assault the Block that launched him. The movie got here out of nowhere to win the Viewers Award at each SXSW and Los Angeles movie festivals.

“It’s been a decade since Assault the Block was launched and a lot has modified since then,” Boyega mentioned. “I’m excited to see this heightened story return to the streets of London. Moses has remained one in every of my favorite characters to play and bringing him again is a big honour.”

Stated Cornish: “I’m thrilled we’re formally saying our return to the world of Assault the Block on the tenth anniversary of the movie’s launch. I can’t wait to work alongside John once more, bringing audiences an excellent greater slice of inner-city alien motion.”
