District 9 sequel will be rooted in American history, filming & release dates still unknown!

Last month District 9 film director Neill Blompkamp sat down with The Hollywood Reporter to discuss his plans for District 10. During the interview, Blompkamp confirmed that the film would be made to the same scale as the original, which cost production around $30 million - a rather small figure compared to most mainstream blockbusters today, however if the need arises for a larger budget, Neill explains he will adjust accordingly but the goal is to keep spending low:

If there's slightly more stuff happening in the script, then you need slightly more money. But I think it would still be as stripped-down and bare bones as we could make it. That becomes more nimble and more creative, and personally, I like that.

The script has been in the works for some time now, with Blompkamp, his wife and District 9 star Sharlto Copley all collaborating on its development. While the original focused on events and took place in South Africa, the sequel will focus on something from American history - what exactly that something is, remains to be known.

Currently no release date for the District 9 sequel has been set, nor has any filming start dates been decided. However, it is comforting to know the sequel is still on the table, unlike Blompkamp's failed Alien 5 project which has been indefinitely canned.

As new details arise on District 10, we'll be sure to keep you updated!

That could be a Tough Ask as $30M was the Budget for District 9 like in 2009, if we Adjust that to 2021 then that would be like $40M at Least.... or like doing District 9 back in 2009 on $22M

You could Save by NOT having any Well Known Cast etc......but a Budget of Less than $40-50M could Impact the Special/Practical Effects.

It will be Interesting to see what they PULL OFF though as District 9 was a Very Underrated Movie.
