John Boyega Hints at Future Collaboration With Attack The Block Director
"This is too much madness to explain in one text!"
John Boyega’s post-Star Wars career is shaping up to look pretty phenomenal thus far. In addition to landing the lead role in his first West End play, the actor has been tapped to continue the Pacific Rim franchise as the son of Idris Elba’s character from the first movie and will also be working with Kathryn Bigelow in a new film about the Detroit Riots of 1967.
Clearly this is just the beginning of more exciting things to come–and yesterday, Boyega tweeted out the below tease about a potential future collaboration with his Attack the Block director Joe Cornish:
Saw Joe Cornish the other day. Yes. We are brainstorming. #somethingnew

The movie came out five years ago–I got around to seeing it not long after I was wowed by Boyega in The Force Awakens, and the similarities between those films are surprisingly striking–but what I didn’t realize was that Cornish hasn’t really ventured into any other projects since Attack the Block. Whether this is going to be a follow-up to the first movie or a brand-new collaboration, I don’t really care. I’m basically here for Baeyega and whatever he chooses to pursue.
(But seriously, though. How AWESOME would an Attack the Block sequel be? And for those of you who haven’t seen it: don’t be like me. Remedy that ASAP.)
