Neill Blomkamp's follow up to District 9

For fans of District 9, director Neil Blomkamp's next project will NOT be a sequel to his Oscar nominated movie, but will still stay in the sci-fi genre that will be titled Elysium. Sony pictures has bought the rights to the film ( written by Blomkamp ) and will star Jodie Foste, Matt Damo and Sharlto Copley. Blade Runner set designer Syd Mead will assist Blomkamp i the area because he was a big fan of District 9 and offered to lend any help he could to the project.

The script and the plot have been under very tight wraps to this point, but there have been some leaks as to that it has a similar social allegory that District 9 had and that the film will be " big" and takes place 100 years in the future.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
