Ever since District 9 debuted, we’ve been keeping a really close eye on director Neill Blomkamp. The guy knows how to create otherworldly terror with the best of them, and we can’t wait to see what he cooks up next.
According to Deadline Hollywood Blomkamp is reteaming with his District 9 star Sharlto Copley on his second sci-fi feature, Elysium, which may or may not be somehow tied to the viral video that debuted a while back which has since been dubbed AGM Heartland.
“Neill is taking meetings all over town. There is a lot of interest from every studio,” an insider tells Deadline, who adds that Blomkamp is including a graphic novel in his presentation. Elysium is Blomkamp’s long-awaited story set in the far future on another planet and, like District 9, is said to be filled with many sociopolitical ideas wrapped up inside a Hollywood action film.
Look for more on this one soon.
