Hugh Jackman Cast In Neill Blomkamp’s “Chappie”

September 29, 2013

Hugh Jackman (Wolverine, Prisoners) has confirmed that he has been cast in Neill Blomkamp’s upcoming picture titled CHAPPIE.

Chappie is the story of a robot, voiced by Blomkamp regular Sharlto Copley, who gets stolen by two gangsters who plan to use him for their criminal purposes. Experimental South African rappers Ninja and Yolandi Visser will portray the hoodlums.

When asked about taking the role at a press conference for Prisoners, Jackman said: “Yes, that’s true.

But I am doing a role in Neill’s new film, called Chappie, which we shoot in Johannesburg. I’m there for a couple of weeks at the beginning of next year.

Sony Pictures Entertainment and MRC are reuniting again with Blomkamp following the sci-fi feature Elysium.
