This is a big year for Boyega, who also starred in Breaking as well as The Woman King, which is now playing in theatres. Last year, the news broke that Joe Cornish and Boyega would be reuniting to for a sequel to the beloved film, Attack the Block. Boyega has provided some updates about the project, and his latest comments tease that he's involved in the writing process.
"This process has been fantastic," Boyega told Collider. "The story has actually been presented by myself and Joe Cornish. We've collaborated heavily on making a story that makes sense for Moses and the other characters, and the new characters that will be coming up in the sequel too. And then, also, there's different perspectives in writing it, with Joe having his perspective and me having mine. London has changed so much, in so many different ways, over the years since the first movie. We're just tryin' to make sure we explore all of that while bringing in a whole different vibe to that crazy ass first movie that we made."
"We're quite close. We're gettin' there," Boyega added. "Obviously, we don't wanna release no dates to anybody because we wanna take care of the creative process. We have the main spine of the story, but we're still in the lab, just making sure the story is right. Story is everything. But it won't be too long. I've given them the drums to speed up the process. Hopefully soon, we'll have an announcement for when we'll be around London, messin' stuff up."
As for They Cloned Tyrone, the movie does not yet have a release date, but the new trailer teases it's "coming soon."
