Hugh Jackman To Star In Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie


Hugh JackmanWhile Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium had its faults, there is no denying that it looked absolutely stunning. He can bring incredible images to life on the big screen.

His next film, Chappie, already has Sharlto Copley, Jose Pablo Cantillo Die Antwoord rappers, Ninja and Yolandi Visser.

Chappie tells the story of a robot imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes.

Copley is voicing Chappie and that is about all we know on it. The plot synopsis above only gives us the very basics so there is no saying what we will end up seeing.

However, we will be seeing Hugh Jackman as he has announced he has joined the production and will be filming next year. There is no word on what his role will be.

Chappie is due out in March 2015.
