It was one of the most celebrated and critically acclaimed Sci-Fi action films of recent times and now it seems that a sequel to District 9 may well be on its way.

Neill Blomkamp confirmed over the weekend that he alongside Sharlto Copley and Terri Tatchell are currently writing up the script for a District 10, which will no doubt please fans who are eager to see where the story continues after the events of the first film.

A sequel has been rumoured for years after the original grossed over $211 million worldwide, the largest-ever sum ever for a South African film, in which it also managed to get four Academy Award nominations, including best picture and original screenplay.

Now all we need is confirmation that Blomkamp is finally bringing Ripley back to the big screen!!
