I wont lie to you, I really can’t wait for Neill Blomkamp and Terri Tatchell to bring us back to District 9!
Neil has created something special in Chappie. Not a new concept, but as always, he puts a very “real world” present day spin on a challenge that humans will eventually have to face. Cultural conflict as well as socio-economic challenge is woven into the script as expected.
Blomkamp was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. At the age of sixteen he met Sharlto Copley, who had also attended Redhill High School in Johannesburg. Copley provided Blomkamp with the use of computers at his production company, for Blomkamp to pursue his passion and talent for 3D animation and design. In return, Blomkamp assisted Copley in creating 3D work for pitches on various projects. Blomkamp was 18 when he moved to Vancouver with his family, where he enrolled in Vancouver Film School. An amazing friendship, Copley actually performs the role of Chappie for post production motion capture FVX.
FYI: The link to upcoming films is on the site under “coming soon”.

Looking forward to this.
