Matt Damon Journeying to Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium

No Comments

Looks like Neill Blomkamp’s “Elysium”, his follow-up to his surprise hit “District 9″, is about to land its A-list male lead. Deadline is reporting that Matt Damon is currently in “early talks” to join the secretive sci-fi project (what isn’t nowadays in Hollywood?). If he ends up joining, Damon will star alongside Sharlto Copley, Blomkamp’s “District 9″ star, and the film’s first official castmember.

“Elysium” will take place on an alien planet and set in the far-future, and that’s really all we know about the film so far.

Damon can next be seen in the sci-fi movie “The Adjustment Bureau” with Emily Blunt.
