March 6th is the day to mark on your busy calendar for the release of Neil Blomkamp’s ‘Chappie’. Neil Blomkamp, who has been recognized by Forbes Magazine as one of Africa’s most powerful celebrities, doesn’t have many films under his belt, but District 9 and Elysium’s success was enough to prove Blomkamp’s Chappie was the right choice for MRC’s next Sci fi project.

Chappie was co-written by Blomkamp alongside District 9 and Elysiums’s writer Terri Tatchell. The film is an expansion of his short film ‘Tetra Val’ (see video below) with a interesting plot that follows a robot named Chappie who is kidnapped by two South African gangsters and brought up into a strange and dysfunctional world. Fans are rooting on Blomkamp to extend his winning streak with this film and are also looking forward to the return of Sharito Copley as the voice of Chappie. The cast will also include Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, Jose Pablo Cantillo, and South African rappers Ninja and Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord as Chappie’s kidnappers.

Be sure to check out ‘Tetra Val’ to see the inspiration behind the movie.
