‘Chappie’ Official Trailer

Sony Pictures Entertainment and MRC have agreed to co-produce and co-finance Chappie, the next film from writer-director Neill Blomkamp.  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.  The film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters. Check out the official trailer for ‘Chappie’ below:

Commenting on the announcement, president of Columbia pictures, Doug Belgrad said, “We’re huge fans of Neill Blomkamp – it’s a real thrill to be continuing our relationship with such a visionary and important filmmaker.  Neill has proven that he is a true original voice and we expect that Chappie will strike a chord with worldwide audiences in the same way that District 9 and Elysium have.  We love the script he and Terri have written and we’re looking forward to working again with our friends at MRC.”

“Neill is an incredibly talented and bold artist and we are proud to continue to support his work.  We are looking forward to partnering with the team at Sony on Chappie,” said Modi Wiczyk, co-CEO of MRC.

Blomkamp will direct the film from a screenplay he has written with Terri Tatchell.  Similar to his previous film, District 9, Chappie is based on a short film Blomkamp created years ago. He will also produce the film with Simon Kinberg (Star Wars, Fantastic Four). The film will be marketed and distributed worldwide by Sony Pictures.

Chappie follows the 2013 release of Elysium, Blomkamp’s second feature, starring Matt Damon and Jodie Foster, which Blomkamp wrote, directed and also produced with Bill Block and Simon Kinberg.  Elysium opened at #1 in the U.S. this weekend, and was also #1 in Russia, Sweden, Taiwan and Ukraine. Sony Pictures also released Blomkamp’s first feature film, District 9, which took in over $200 million worldwide and earned four Oscar® nominations, including Best Picture.
