It looks like District 10 may be a go. The sequel to District 9 has been talked about since the original movie was a smash it last year and now MarketSaw’s contacts at WETA say that not only is it happening, it’s already in pre-production. Word is that they plan to start shooting in October of this year.

There had been some question as to whether director Neill Blomkamp would make a District 9 sequel his next project, unsurprisingly in the wake of the film’s Oscar nomination he has a lot of options. But MS says Neill is back in the director’s chair along with Peter Jackson in a produce role again. It’s all rumor for now though, we’ll let you know when there’s some official confirmation.

As for what it’ll be about if it actually happens, right now no one’s entirely certain. The last movie laid out several possible roadmaps which we discussed here. For now, no one even really knows what it’ll be called. District 10 is just a convenient moniker until Blomkamp gives us something real.
