Copley Talks District 10 Wikus Van De Merwe addresses the sequel buzz.

A rumor surfaced yesterday claiming that District 10 -- the proposed sequel to last year's celebrated sci-fi smash District 9 -- would shoot later this year, with Neill Blomkamp and Peter Jackson back to direct and produce, respectively. Unfortunately, the pic sounds a lot farther off than that, according to Sharlto Copley, who played the doomed Wikus Van De Merwe in the Oscar-nominated original.

"Neil wants it and I want it. Neil's doing another film first. Then I think if everything goes according to plan we'll do the second film in about two years time. That story can go in so many different ways. There's a whole universe," Copley told Empire.

The actor added, "There's a million ways you can go. Neil's actually very interested in prequels as well; he's said that a few times. We wouldn't do the traditional Hollywood version of the sequel which would just be 100 aliens fighting humans."

Copley will next be seen as Howling Mad Murdock in The A-Team.

Director Neill Blomkamp Talks 'District 9'... and 'District 10'?

In District 9, writer-director and Peter Jackson prot้g้ Neill Blomkamp takes us into a near-future where one million insectoid alien refugees now make their home outside Johannesburg, South Africa, in the squalid, heavily patrolled titular camp. This is what I love about sci-fi, the way that it can take subjects like immigration and racism that don't always make for exciting movies, and turn them into stories that are fresh, disturbing in its social commentary, and, most of all, dramatically powerful. If you're looking for a recommendation, I can't give District 9 high enough marks. Keep your eye on Blomkamp in the next couple of years; he's going to become the next Jackson or Spielberg, capable of packing a surplus of heart into difficult and fantastical scenarios. I sat down with him recently to discuss his directorial debut and the future.

Cole Haddon: Talk about how the unique idea behind District 9 took shape.

Neill Blomkamp: Well, it's a long story. I guess the genesis of the film comes from the short film I did in 2005: Alive in Joburg. At the time, I was directing commercials. But in between commercials, I did these crazy short films to just mess around with ideas. And I had an idea to just put Western sci-fi I'd grown up with into a South African setting. That's what Alive in Joburg was. When it came time to turn that into a feature film, the first thing we had to do was flesh out the world of District 9 and, from there, you could decide what POV you wanted to tell the story from.

CH: Is it too simplistic to look at the aliens segregated into District 9 as a metaphor for blacks under Apartheid?

NB: It's not too simplistic, but I think there are other elements. Another element that should be noted is, with the new black government since probably 1999 onwards, the large number of illegal immigrants in South Africa have become a problem. They're mostly Zimbabweans, because Zimbabwe was collapsing, and they crossed the border into South Africa. So if you forget about Apartheid for a second, if you forget about white oppression, there's a whole other social dynamic going on with impoverished Zimbabweans who have come to South Africa for a richer life by comparative standards. But they've ended up in a lot of the impoverished townships a lot of black South Africans live in. So now black South Africans view these Zimbabweans with animosity because they'll work for less money. The short film has some of that, with these black South Africans wanting the aliens out of their townships. That's a crazy thing, because there aren't many places in the world where that would happen.

CH: You spent several months developing the Halo videogame adaptation as your first feature director's gig, which, by the way, is a hell of a big movie for a virtual rookie to be handed. District 9 is in the same genre, so did Halo have any influence on the project that succeeded it?

NB: The conscious answer is no. Especially because, if you work on something for five months, day in, day out, you want to make sure you're getting as far away from that as possible. But I think what's true about Halo and about District 9 is that Halo is definitely influenced by the sci-fi of James Cameron and Aliens and probably Robert Heinlein and Starship Troopers. District 9 is an amalgamation of other sci-fi as well. So an answer to your question is that we're both drawing from the same 50 years of Western sci-fi. But consciously, there's zero connection between the two.

CH: How did you approach the action in District 9? The in-your-face verit้ style resulted in a pretty visceral experience.

NB: The way I approached the action is the same way I approached the film. Right from the beginning, it was supposed to be the fantastic and the mundane. Crazy science fiction in an everyday real situation. It's also presented with a very everyday paint brush. It's not Hollywood per se. So what I wanted the action sequences to be was they were just happening right in front of you. I didn't have a lot of crazy camera angles. I think if you mix that with a lot of expensive visual effects, you end up with something that's definitely more grounded.

CH: There are a lot of what I'd call meat explosions. Aliens exploding. Humans exploding. It's friggin' awesome. Can you talk about going to that extreme?

NB: I knew right from the beginning that I wanted it to be violent. Then a few months after we started, I realized a satirical, dark humor direction for the whole film mixed with something that felt real would be the best way to go. Especially with it being my first film; don't make it too serious. Once I knew there was satire and I wanted it to be quite violent, meat explosions seemed the way to go.

CH: Are you up for doing District 10 next?

NB: If the audience wanted another film, yeah, it would be super-cool to go into the backstory of the aliens.

CH: Have you already worked out what it would be about?

NB: Not really. It's been two-and-a-half years solid making this film. Now that I'm at the end of it, I've been caught a little unawares about what I want to do next. I know I'd love to go back to the world of District 9, though, if the audience wants another film.

A District 10?

This weekend as predicted DISTRICT 9 ruled the box-office. Is it possible that we will get a sequel?

Director Neill Blomkamp would jump at the chance, “I would do anything to go back to the world of District 9 again. Or District 10.” It would be an excellent idea. The movie sets itself up for it. Now, I'm obviously not going to tell you why because some of you haven't seen it, but when you do you'll understand.

DISTRICT 9 was one of those movies that gets as close to perfect as possible. I went to see the film at the secret screening during Comic-Con, and it made me shut up and take notice. Usually I talk through films if they are bad like something out of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATRE 3000, but there was no need for that this time.

So I say go ahead with a sequel, but take the time to figure it all out. When a movie becomes so hyped up and successful the film company often wants to roll out another film. Unfortunately, sometimes though the sequel isn't what you wanted. I haven't seen TRANSFORMERS 2 yet, but I've heard it's got that very same feeling. Maybe we'll get some proper news on a sequel soon enough.
