Die Antwoord Cast in Chappie

According to “Chappie” producer Simon Kinber, Die Antwoord “are their own unique, crazy, enthralling, entity”, and were responsible for bringing their own personality and branded look to the movie. This video gives us the background story on how Die Antwoord was cast in Chappie. Neill Blomkamp says, “Out of nowhere I had this idea that, that band raised one of these robots”.

Ninja tells us that they were “huge fans of Neill’s, so when he asked them it was a “complete freak out”.

“Chappie” will be in theaters March 6, starring Hugh Jackman, Sharlto Copley, Sigourney Weaver, Dev Patel, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Brandon Auret, and Yolandi and Ninja from “Die Antwoord”.
