Elysium director to continue with sci-fi theme in next film

August 14th, 2013 by bash Comments

Sony Pictures has announced Neill Blomkamp will begin directing his next film this Autumn – and it’s another sci-fi tale.

Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes.

The film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters.

Blomkamp will work from a screenplay he has written with Terri Tatchell. He will also produce the film with Simon Kinberg.

His current project, Elysium, starring Matt Damon, is currently on release.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
