Hugh Jackman signs up for Neill Blomkamp's Chappie
The new film from District 9 and Elysium direction Neill Blomkamp, Chappie, has Hugh Jackman on board...
We're already looking forward to director Neill Blomkamp's third film, Chappie. It's a project he told us about here way back in June, and it follows his success with both District 9 and this summer's Elysium.
Furthemore, it looks like he's just managed to sign Wolverine up as one of the new film's stars. Hugh Jackman has revealed that he's set to feature in Chappie, when giving a press conference at the Zurich Film Festival (he was promoting his US chart-topper, Prisoners). "I am doing a role in Neill's new film called Chappie, which we shoot in Johannesburg", reported Screen Daily. "I'm there for a couple of weeks at the beginning of next year".
Sharlto Copley has also already been confirmed to feature in the new movie, and Dev Patel is also set to take part.
More news on Chappie, which is set for release on 27th March 2015, as we get it.
