There isn’t much known about Neill Blomkamp’s (Elysium, District 9) next film, Chappie. Nothing really known except that it is based on a short film he did years ago. That short was called Tetra Vaal and it was ad for a robotic police force that patrolled South Africa. So far Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire) and Sharlto Copley (District 9) were already cast. has announced that Hugh Jackman (The Wolverine) will now play Patel’s rival in the picture. 

Chappie has a released date of March 27th, 2015.

Bring it on! Not only I am excited for a Neil Blomkamp film, but DEFINITELY EXCITED Hugh Jackman will take another part besides the Wolverine. I'm sadly getting burnt out on the Wolverine thing (hopefully until DOFP). And a villainous character at that.. I think he could pull it off well. He was sort of a player in Real Steel and I loved his performance in The Prestige (which involved some conniving).

District 9 was a great movie. Elysium was alright. I'm not that excited for this. It seems like it will be the same shanty town back drop along with a story about the oppressed getting tired and fighting back.

Boldy Noted :Jackman as the Wolverine is getting a little tired especially since they cut off the Adamantium claws.

 I didn't like either Elysium or District 9 so I will skip anything made by Mr. Blomkamp even if it has Hugh in it.

Hugh is in Prisioners right?  Yeah he is doing way much more than Wolverine.

Hated District 9 ignored Elysium. So have no interest in this. It will probably be another preachy heavy handed alagory to racism, health care reform, and or environmental issues. Yawn.

District 9 was excellent and Elysium wasn't very good (Sharlto Copley was way beyond awful too); I'm tiring of Blomkamp's political statements "disguised" as a movie.  I'll give him another shot but I suspect it will be more of the same.  I really don't care about your political views Neill; maybe some people do so I'll let them fund your public service announcements.

Hugh has done Les Miserables, Prisoners, Real Steel.. umm Deception. Voiced a bunny in Rise of the Guardians. 

I'm still getting burnt out on Wolverine. No disrespect or hate, just need a palate cleanse. Nothing wrong with that.
