A decade after the original Attack the Block made John Boyega a name to watch in the movie world via a trilogy of Star Wars films, a Pacific Rim sequel and a Golden Globe, Boyega is back in the role of Moses in Attack the Block 2. The original co-starred current Doctor Who Jodie Whittaker, and while there’s no word on who is in the sequel we do know Joe Cornish is back.
The aliens are back on the block. A decade after Attack the Block achieved sci-fi cult status and launched the career of its star John Boyega, Studiocanal, Film4, Complete Fiction Pictures & UpperRoom Productions are moving forward with Attack the Block 2 with Boyega locked to return as Moses.
“It’s been a decade since Attack the Block was released and so much has changed since then,” Boyega said. “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.”
Said Cornish: “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.”
