Default Neill Blomkamp’s next project... ELYSIUM?

Neill Blomkamp’s New Sci-Fi Film is Called Elysium; Reps Say He Won’t Direct The Hobbit

OK, first up, no great surprise that when Neill Blomkamp’s representatives finally spoke up about the rumor that he would direct The Hobbit, their response was, “uh, no.”

At the end of last week a report from The One Ring, firmly characterized even there as rumor, suggested that Blomkamp was the choice to direct The Hobbit. Easy to see where that would come from, given his prior experience working with Peter Jackson on District 9. But Vulture talked to ‘an insider’ from Blomkamp’s agency, WME, who said that he isn’t directing and hasn’t even been contacted.

But the more interesting news to come out of Vulture’s report is that the sci-fi film Blomkamp has talked about over the past year is called Elysium. A recap on details about that one after the break.

Vulture’s report that nixes the ‘Blomkamp in the Shire’ rumor says that he’s working on Elysium, “an original sci-fi script of his,” for Media Rights Capital.
That makes Elysium the name of the film that he mentioned back in October,

"Hopefully, this will be a bit unique, very much a reflection of me. It is absolutely another science fiction film, quite different from `District 9,’ but some of the blending of genres and the tone might be within the same realm."


Which also seems to be the same film he discussed at Comic Con last year when premiering District 9,

"I’ve got one science fiction idea that I’m absolutely in love with, which I’m pretty sure is going to be my next film. 99% sure…It’s totally original, it’s my own story…It’s set on another planet, but it’s cool. It’s violent, very violent, and very unique hopefully. We’ll see."

He’s also said of the film,

"it is science fiction and it has many sociopolitical ideas that interest me. Those ideas are wrapped up inside something that is like a Hollywood action film…The setting for the next film takes place 150 years from now. There are two cities that I’m choosing between. They would play as themselves. They are not in South Africa."

That last comment seems to contradict the ’set on another planet’ aspect, but no big deal. It’s his story — things can change.

More important is the Media Rights Capital part of the equation, which can’t really be over-emphasized.

When that deal was announced, we heard that not only would MRC finance the film, the company will give Blomkamp creative freedom and an ownership stake in the film. That’s a big deal. That sort of deal is also part of why he’s expressed a lack of interest in doing massively-budgeted studio films. Why work on a $200m production with a dozen suits looking over your shoulder every day when you can have total freedom on your own project? Sure, Elysium’s last budget report pegged it as being in the $30-40m range, but we saw what Blomkamp can do with that budget on District 9. He’s in perfect territory.

Excellent, can't wait for him to show us what he can do again. While it would've been nice to see his talents applied to a fantasy movie like the Hobbit, I'm just glad he's moving on with another project.

Glad he's not doing The Hobbit. Didn't feel like a right fit to me, and I'm glad he's not staying under Jackson's umbrella.

I can't wait to get a look at this.

Well that's ****ing weird, I wonder if this is going to lead to a viral? Seems like an odd thing to crank out.

Well, that certainly didn't look like it was set on another planet, or far in the future... but it definitely has my interest, whatever the hell it is. Perhaps this is some "lost footage" that we'll see in this movie, when it comes out. I'm curious why the camera kept focusing on that building in the distance... looked like a refinery or something. I'm guessing there's some significance there. The creature looks like an alien, but it could also be some sort of genetically manipulated animal (hence the stamp).

This reminds me of a strange story I heard awhile ago about some strange creature that washed up on the shore of some lake in Canada.



It ended up being a Mink but it still had everyone talking.

weird. Kind of looks like the creature in the film too. Maybe that story inspired him? Dunno.

so I wonder if this is connected to Elysium or not, because this doesnt seem to fit with anything he has talked about thus far.

My prediction is that the movie will deal with military experiments or a nuclear plant and messed up creatures.

Forget it. Shaky cam is here to stay as long as movies using it are successful. And it fit D9 quite well, I must say. Depends on the project, although I think this fake documentary style really prevents you from truly getting into the movie. It's also some kind of fake realism if they use it to "truly feel the battle", because the human eye is not a camera, it fixates dynamically on movements.

Neil's uses a little more than just the "shaky cam". If you watch his short films and even some parts of D9 you'll notice he likes to use anything with a lens as a camera. I've seen shots in the Halo short he did from surveillance cameras and stuff like that. Really cool ****.

Blomkamp and Copley Reteaming for Elysium

Source: Deadline
December 6, 2010



Deadline is reporting that District 9 writer/director Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley (The A-Team) are reteaming for Blomkamp's new sci-fi movie Elysium.

The site says that Elysium is "set in the far future on another planet and, like 'District 9,' is filled with many sociopolitical ideas wrapped up inside a Hollywood action film."

Blomkamp and Media Rights Capital are currently looking for a distributor, with Blomkamp including a graphic novel in his presentation to studios. District 9 was released by Sony's TriStar Pictures.

District 9, which was made for just $30 million, earned $210.8 million worldwide. The film was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar, as well as in the Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing and Visual Effects categories.
