Writer and director Joe Cornish (The Adventures of Tintin) has confirmed this week that several options for his British science-fiction/action film, Attack The Block, are now on the table, including a sequel, a television series and an American remake.
Attack The Block was released in the UK in May 2011 and was Cornish’s directorial debut. The film stars Nick Frost (The Adventures of Tintin), Jodie Whittaker (One Day), Luke Treadaway (Killing Bono), and many new faces including John Boyega, Alex Esmail, Leeon Jones, Paige Meade, and Simon Howard. The film centered on a street gang living on council estate in South London who were faced with having to defend themselves from an alien invasion.
