The District 9 Boys Re-Teaming for Elysium

2 Comments

Like “District 9″? Then you’ll probably like “Elysium”, “District 9″ director Neill Blomkamp’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated movie. Now word is that Blomkamp has recruited his “District 9″ star, Sharlto Copley (last seen in “The A-Team” reboot as Howling Mad Murdoch) to star in his sci-fi picture.

So what’s it all about?

Elysium is Blomkamp’s long-awaited story set in the far future on another planet and, like District 9, is filled with many sociopolitical ideas wrapped up inside a Hollywood action film.

I don’t know about “long-awaited”. Didn’t “District 9″ just come out last year?

In any case, look for “Elysium” soon, since Blomkamp is apparently taking meetings and getting everything in order to shoot this thing post haste.

As for a “District 9″ sequel? The studio wants it, of course (the original did over $200 million worldwide on a $30 million budget), but Blomkamp and producer Peter Jackson aren’t quite ready to return yet.

'And so I was like, if you thought District 9 was big, wait til I unzip my fly! Hey-yo!'
