Neill Blomkamp's “Chappie” Gets Teased

Sony Pictures has unveiled the first poster and trailer for Neill Blomkamp's next sci-fi film “Chappie”.

The film is based on “Tetra Vaal” a short film about a robot with the emotions and brain of a child on the police force patrolling the slums of South Africa.

Sharlto Copley would play the police robot while Dev Patel will play a man in the impoverished town.

Eugene Khumbanyiwa Hugh Jackman Sigourney Weaver and Elysium’s Jose Pablo Cantillo also star.

Described as a science fiction comedy, Chappie is based on an original concept thought up by Blomkamp and his wife, District 9 co-writer Terri Tatchell.

Simon Kinberg is producing the film.
