William Fichtner appears likely to round out the cast of Neill Blomkamp’s Elysium, Variety is reporting.

If he commits to the project, Fichtner will join Matt Damon, Jodie Foster and Sharlto Copley in the sophomore feature from the District 9 director which is said to tell a sociopolitical science fiction story set on another planet in the far future.

Fichtner, who has appeared in The Dark Knight, Black Hawk Down and Crash, most recently appeared in Drive Angry 3D.

Elysium is expected to enter production soon with a targeted release date of March 8, 2013.
