A Facebook page for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie, a sci-fi comedy starring fellow South Africans Ninja and ¥o-Landi Vi$$er of Die Antwoord as themselves and frequent Blomkamp collaborator  Sharlto Copley (Wikus in District 9 and Kruger in Elysium) as the titular android Chappie, has gone live and indicates we can expect the film in 2015. Die Antwoord separately posted the first image of Chappie himself. 

Chappie's local South African cast is fleshed out with some big international names, not least of which are Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, and Dev Patel.

After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot.

Love Blomkamp's aesthetic, this should be awesome. On a side note Elysium was really underrated.

Amen. I loved Elysium.

I enjoyed Elysium mostly but just felt it was missing something. Couldn't place my finger on what it was but it just felt like part of it was missing.
