Chappie Synopsis
Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there's one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.

Making Elysium, writer/director Neill Blomkamp cast Matt Damon in his first live-action science-fiction role, but for the filmmaker's next project he is turning to not only a sci-fi pro, but a sci-fi legend. Blomkamp's Chappie has just added Ellen Ripley herself, Sigourney Weaver to the cast, the actress joining an ensemble that includes Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel and Sharlto Copley.

He even gives a time window on when the film will start up. “I am doing a role in Neill’s new film,” Jackman confirmed, “which we shoot in Johannesburg. I’m there for a couple of weeks at the beginning of next year.” No word on what his role will be, and “doing a role” downplays the part, but whatever.

Walking Dead Star Caesar Martinez Joins Neill Blomkamp's Chappie Walking Dead Star Caesar Martinez Joins Neill Blomkamp's Chappie
Described as a science fiction comedy, Chappie is based on an original concept thought up by Blomkamp and his wife, District 9 co-writer Terri Tatchell. Its story centers on an artificial intelligence-equipped robot used by the Johannesburg police force that is kidnapped by a crew of criminals who plot to use the self-aware machine in their evil schemes

Neill Blomkamp's Elysium Followup Sets 2015 Release Date Neill Blomkamp's Elysium Followup Sets 2015 Release Date
Neill Blomkamp may still have the power to save science fiction, but he's going to have to continue working to prove it. The District 9 director's new film Elysium is a modest hit, but failed to live up to the expectations from Blomkamp's directorial debut-- no easy feat, of course, since District 9 was a massively profitable Best Picture nominee

Elysium's Neill Blomkamp Targeting Slumdog Millionaire Star For Sci-Fi Comedy Chappie Elysium's Neill Blomkamp Targeting Slumdog Millionaire Star For Sci-Fi Comedy Chappie
Set to be both directed and co-written (with Terri Tatchell) by Blomkamp, the movie is based on a short film that the filmmaker made called Tetra Vaal. While it's unclear at this point how the idea will be stretched into a feature length story, the short was a fake commercial for a highly-advanced robot that could be used during police exercises in the slums of South Africa. You can watch the short below.

Unlike their previous collaborations, this new film will apparently be much lighter, with the star describing it as "a science-fiction comedy." Plot details about the film are being kept under wraps at the moment, but Copley teased the magazine saying that it has "an unusual setting."

District 9's Neil Blomkamp Already Working On His Third Feature District 9's Neil Blomkamp Already Working On His Third Feature
With only one four-year-old feature film behind him, you’d think filmmaker Neil Blomkamp would be a small blip on pop culture’s radar instead of the secret-shrouded spotlight nabber he’s continued to be for the past few years.
