Boyega starred in the 2011 film
John Boyega is planning to work with Attack the Block director Joe Cornish on a new project. The Star Wars actor got his big break in Cornish’s 2011 movie, after starring as lead character Moses.
Attack the Block told the story of a teen gang in South London, led by Boyega, defend their block from an alien invasion.
Boyega took to Twitter to tease a new project, writing: “Saw Joe Cornish the other day. Yes. We are brainstorming. #somethingnew”
In 2011, Cornish discussed plans for a sequel, a US remake and a spin-off TV series for Attack the Block. Speaking of the potential sequel to Digital Spy, Cornish said that Boyega “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.”
“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 continued. “So yeah it’s really fun to think of stuff like that and what we could do.”
Boyega is currently working on Star Wars Episode VIII, Pacific Rim 2 and Kathryn Bigelow’s movie about the Detroit riots.
