In an interview with IGN, Blomkamp explained that it had taken time to find a “reason” to make the follow up film. District 9 was released over 10 years ago and a sequel has been discussed as early as 2009 – before the original film had premiered.

“That script continues to be written.” Blomkamp told IGN. “It’s looking good. It took a decade to figure out, to come up with a reason why to make that film as opposed to just make a sequel.”
“There was a topic in American history that the second I realized that that fit into the world of District 9, it felt like an awesome way to do a sequel. So yeah, it continues to be developed and it’s getting a lot closer.”
Blomkamp is currently awaiting the August release of his new horror film Demonic, shot during the pandemic.
