District 9 Director and Star Reteam For Elysium

Neill Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley will be travelling to an alien world for Elysium

District 9 writer/director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley are teaming up again for Blomkamp's new sci-fi movie, Elysium, according to Deadline .

Apparently the film “set in the far future on another planet and, like District 9 , is filled with many sociopolitical ideas wrapped up inside a Hollywood action film.” The article claims that Blomkamp is currently in meetings with various studios to secure a big distributor, and that part of the deal he’s proposing includes a graphic novel.

But does it have anything to do that mysterious short film directed by Blomkamp that surfaced recently that many thought might be a teaser for his next film? Seems unlikely – that looked very much like it was set on Earth – but you never know.
