Neill Blomkamp Has Written & Directed A New Supernatural Horror Film
According to Deadline, Oscar-nominated filmmaker Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) has written and directed his first feature film since 2015’s Chappie, a currently untitled supernatural horror movie that was made “under-the-radar” during the pandemic. The movie was filmed in British Columbia over the summer with on-set COVID-19 protocols in place.
Written and directed by Blomkamp, the plot details for the movie are being kept under wraps but the project is reportedly one Blomkamp had “always wanted to make.”
The cast for the film is mostly made up of Canadian actors and it is rumored there is a “strong sci-fi and VFX component in keeping with Blomkamp’s previous three movies,” which would be Chappie, starring Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Hugh Jackman, and Sigourney Weaver, Elysium, Blomkamp’s highest-grossing project so far, starring Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, and Copley, and District 9, nominated for four Oscars and starring Copley.
Editor Julian Clarke (Deadpool, District 9, Elysium) and Director of Photography Byron Kopman (Volition) are also attached to the project.
The untitled horror is produced by AGC Studios.
