Neill Blomkamp reteams with Sharlto Copley for Elysium




We could write about the goofy rumors that Kanye West knocked up Kim Kardashian, but we thought you'd be better served with real entertainment news: Neill Blomkamp has reportedly cast his pal and District 9 cohort Sharlto Copley in his next movie, Elysium. We know it's not a sequel, but can we have more exploding people, please?

"Neil is taking meetings all over town. There is a lot of interest from every studio," a source tells "They have been working out budget and are now meeting with actor reps." The only one actually cast thus far, however, is Copley, who is fresh off his summer hit, The A-Team.


Elysium is set in the future amid some sort of strife, but details are anemic at best. With any luck, Blomkamp will eventually get that green light to make his Halo movie, so we can nerd out with a Blomkamp triple feature by 2015.
