District 9 Already Set For Sequel?

It killed at the box office this weekend, but will District 9 get a sequel?

It might be too soon to know for sure, but many involved with the project seem to think it likely.

The star of the sci-fi thriller, Sharlto Copley, suggested that because of the filmmaker’s method of “improvisatory dialogue” and shooting film at random, there may in fact be enough footage on the cutting room floor to already spawn a sequel. And if not, they’ll make for killer DVD Extras.

“The behind-the-scenes DVD is gonna be crazy because we shot an enormous amount of footage,” he says. “There were a lot of exciting avenues to want to go down and you really [have to fit it all] into a small block of time.”

Last month, at Comic-Con, Peter Jackson, the film’s producer, was reluctant to suggest that there might be a sequel, but given the immense success of the film so far, we can see it happening.

Did U see District 9 this weekend? Should there be a sequel?
