Blomkamp’s Next Title is Chappie
As if the director could make anything other than excellent science fiction.
Sony Pictures has just announced that his next movie “Chappie” will be shot in the fall and will star the two members of Die Antwoord (Ninja and Yolandi Visser) and Sharlto Copley. That’s a ton of South African talent right there. Chappie will be about a A.I. infused robot that is stolen by a couple of gangsters who want to use him/it for their own purposes. I’ve got my fingers crossed that those gangsters are none other than our Zef dynamic duo.
Blomkamp has been enjoying some serious limelight with his recent success with Elysium and his past success with District 9 is easily one of the best pieces of sci-fi in recent memory.

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
