Neill Blomkamp is preparing to see his latest movie “Elysium” to hit theaters this summer starring Matt Damon. But Blomkamp isn’t forgetting his “District 9” fans.

“I really want to make a District 9 sequel. I genuinely do. The problem is I have a bunch of ideas and stuff that I want to make. I’m relatively new to this – I’m about to make my third film, and now the pattern that I’m starting to realise is very true is that you lock yourself into a film beyond the film you’re currently working on. But it just doesn’t work for me.

“I don’t know if it works for other directors, but the amount of ideas and the amount of different places I want to go through the duration of making one film, means that I have no idea what else I want to do during that process. I only know at the end. So if I say I want to make District 10, and then I have 50 ideas while I’m making [next film] Chappie, and when I get to the end I don’t want to make it, it’s not a good place to be at. But I know I want to make District 10 at some point.”

Blomkamp’s name has been possibly attached to joining Star Wars, since J.J. Abrams is only contracted for Episode VII.
