District 9, the Peter Jackson produced sci-fi social commentary flick, hit the number one spot over the weekend, bringing in an estimated $37 million.  While not spectacular for major block buster numbers, the film reportedly cost $30 million to make, with Sony/Tri-Star buying the distribution rights for $25 million.  That means as the movie gains momentum over the next couple of weeks, that there will be a lot of gravy floating around for a potential sequel if director Neill Blomkamp decides to go for it.

And while you might be flying high on that news, I’ll bring you back down with word that the Wayans Brothers (Marlon and Shawn) are in talks with Sony to develop sequel to their 2004 comedy White Chicks. Brother Keenen Ivory is set to direct and is also writing the script with his brothers.

    I saw District 9 on friday and I thought it was a fantastic original movie. Did it get kind of preachy? Yes, but it was a fantastic looking movie!!!
