Joe Cornish talks potential spin-offs to runaway hit Attack the Block

15 October 2011

Joe Cornish has talked about a sequel and a US remake of his surprise hit Attack the Block which saw hoodies-vs-aliens in a South London setting.

Cornish of Adam and Joe fame spoke to IFC about compelling sequel ideas foam his lead John Boyega who played Moses "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.

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."

Not only that it seems there's interest in spin-offs, Cornish added "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."

Attack the Block also starred Jodie Whittaker, Nick Frost and Luke Treadaway and out now on Blu-ray and DVD.
