‘District 9’ team to reunite for ‘Elysium’

Neill Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley team up for new sci-fi film

District 9 director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley are to reunite for new sci-fi action movie Elysium.

South African-set District 9 was one of the most talked-about films of 2009, putting a political spin on alien invasion movies.

Last month Blomkamp posted an odd, sci-fi-tinged video online, with internet rumours suggesting the posting and the forthcoming new movie may be linked.

Deadline.com reports that a number of studios are interested in Elysium, with a graphic novel based on the film also thought to be tied to the deal.

The A-Team star Sharlto Copley will next be seen in Men In Black III, which opens in May 2012.

Copley recently suggested that a follow-up to District 9, while very likely, would be about two years away, given his and the director’s current commitments.
