Attack the Block 2: John Boyega is Co-Writing with Joe Cornish

Speaking to Collider, Force Awakens star John Boyega offered an update on the sequel to Attack the Block – a lot can happen in a decade.

“This process has been fantastic. The story has actually been presented by myself and Joe Cornish. We’ve collaborated heavily on making a story that makes sense for Moses and the other characters, and the new characters that will be coming up in the sequel too. And then, also, there are different perspectives in writing it, with Joe having his perspective and me having mine. London has changed so much, in so many different ways, over the years since the first movie. We’re just tryin’ to make sure we explore all of that while bringing in a whole different vibe to that crazy ass first movie that we made.”

The 2011 alien horror comedy was not only the film debut for Boyega as the captivating Moses and directorial debut for Cornish, but also starred Doctor Who‘s Jodie Whittaker in her first genre role.

It’s not just London that’s changed, a decade is a long time for Moses too:

“You do go back and watch the movie again and remember the character. I’ve been back to my old script. I have my old notes to read. And then, also, on top of that, all the material that Joe collected, over the time to create the first movie, in terms of his pitch and everything that was in the Bible for Attack the Block, we bring that out of the dusty corners, we blow the dust off, and we get back to work. It’s now about aging the character slightly and seeing where he’s at now.”
