"I would do anything to go back to the world of District 9 again. Or District 10," said the film's director Neill Blomkamp to Entertainment Weekly. Now that Blomkamp has the number one film at the box office and District 9 is a certified hit, does the helmer have something in mind for where we might see the story continue?
Not really but Blomkamp knows that he couldn't make a follow-up without the involvement of the film's star, Sharlto Copley. "I'd love to make a sequel, because it's so creatively rewarding to me; there's just something about [the story]," Blomkamp told Fangoria Radio in an interview conducted before the film's release. "It's my background mixed with the science fiction that I loved. I'd really like to go back to the world of District 9 - which, without Sharlto's character, would be a very different kind of movie. So I think automatically the two of us will be reunited again, should the public decide that this film is something they want to see and it's successful."
Blomkamp also spilled that he has ideas for two other movies, one set in the horror genre and another science fiction film, but that the attraction for him is mainly to make a horror/sci-fi fusion kind of movie. "I want to be in that world, that's where I'd like to be."
