John Boyega is set to reunite with writer/director Joe Cornish on a sequel to Attack the Block, Boyega’s breakthrough film that came out ten years ago. 

Studiocanal, Film4, Complete Fiction Pictures and UpperRoom Productions are in early development on the project. The reunion of the original team includes Nira Park, who produces alongside Cornish via Complete Fiction, and producer James Wilson. Boyega produces for his company UpperRoom. 

Boyega will reprise his role of Moses; plot details are currently under wraps. 

Cornish said: “I’m thrilled we’re officially announcing our return to the world of ‘Attack The Block’ on the tenth anniversary of the film’s release. I can’t wait to work alongside John again, bringing audiences an even bigger slice of inner-city alien action."
The 2011 film featured an ensemble of relatively new, then unknown, actors, including Boyega, who went on to star in several films and most recently earned a Golden Globe and Critics’ Choice Award for his performance in Steve McQueen’s anthology film series Small Axe for BBC/Amazon Prime. Additional cast in the original included Alex Esmail, Danielle Vitalis, Leeon Jones, Franz Drameh, and Simon Howard.  It also starred Jodie Whittaker, Luke Treadaway, and Nick Frost. 

Boyega explained: “It’s been a decade since Attack The Block was released and so much has changed since then. I’m excited to see this heightened story return to the streets of London. Moses has remained one of my favourite characters to play and bringing him back is a huge honour.”
