Neill Blomkamp's Untitled Sci-Fi Film (2011)
It looks like writer/director Neill Blomkamp's next project won't be a sequel to District 9. Instead we'll be getting a brand new concept from Blomkamp with an increased budget. Media Rights Capital has committed to funding Blomkamp's film. MRC is new to me but they've been able to make films like The Adjustment Bureau, Babel, The Invention of Lying, Brüno, The Box and Robert Rodriguez's Shorts. To say they allow creative minds freedom is an understatement. The untitled film will be set on another planet and will be extremely violent, according to Blomkamp. After making an original film like District 9 I'm excited to see what he'll come up with next. It's expected to start production mid-2010.
