Neill Blomkamp District 9
Most directors would kill to have the kind of support (personally backed by Peter Jackson) and success ($210 million worldwide, Best Picture nomination) Neill Blomkamp did on this feature debut, "District 9." And some filmmakers might have felt pressured to keep Hollywood in their favor, and undoubtedly, Blomkamp has been asked numerous times since 2009 about making a sequel, "District 10." But he's largely deflected the question, and been reticent about the enterprise, telling us in 2012, "I'm not sure I'm making that film. It would be cool, but these films take two or three years to make, and the investments are so extreme, you can't accurately predict where you'll be a few years from now, I believe. If you're not creatively invested in it, you're making a mistake, and that creative investment happens day to day. So I don't know when that feeling for a 'District Whatever' film happens." But it seems he's at least drafted an idea.
