Neill Blomkamp finds financing for 'District 9' follow-up
District 9 writer/director Neill Blomkamp has found financing for his next project, Variety reports. Media Rights Capital has come on board for the untitled science fiction project. Bill Block will produce the film, which will shoot by mid-2010. Blomkamp will start writing the script now and working on visual effects. “I’m not particularly interested in massive budget films, or creating huge spectacles that some young directors might be attracted to,” Blomkamp told Variety. “Hopefully, this will be a bit unique, very much a reflection of me. It is absolutely another science fiction film, quite different from District 9, but some of the blending of genres and the tone might be within the same realm.” This film would be shot before any potential District 9 sequel.
