One of the most quotable films of last year, Black Dynamite, is finally seeing release in the UK and with it, murmurings of a possible sequel.
It would seem to me that The Mirror and the other sites repeating the report are taking the quotes for a granted a little, but whether there is actual movement/development or not, Jai White’s intentions are clear.

That said, if I can get even one more line as good as “Ha! I threw that shit before I came in the room!” then it will be worth it. Absolutely worth it.
The cult of the first film continues to grow, so with a successful UK release then White may very well be able to get a sequel off the ground, so keep your fingers crossed if you dig authentically reproduced blaxploitation.
