Sigourney Weaver boards Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi comedy Chappie

Sigourney Weaver is back to what she does best, a flick of the sci-fi variety.

The actress (and one of my heroes) has joined Neill Blomkamp's CHAPPIE. There were no details on the role she would be playing but we do have a synopsis:

"After being kidnapped by two criminals during birth, Chappie becomes the adopted son in a strange and dysfunctional family. Chappie is preternaturally gifted, one of a kind, a prodigy. He also happens to be a robot."

Weaver joins Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel as well as Ninja and Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord.

Copley will voice Chappie, and I've got this feeling that Ninja and Yolandi will be the criminals. Unless they happen to be part of the "dysfunctional family" which would definitely make for an interesting dynamic.

Production has already begun in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Always game for more Blonde Siggy Sig, especially in sci fi films. I didn't know Chappie was going to be a comedy though.

to be honest, but im not sure which characters Die Antwoord would be more fitted to play, the criminals or the family members. Im interested in seeing this. plus Ms Weaver is always welcome

I'm hoping this is better than Elysium

So far, the premise sounds interesting and I know the look of the film will being the style we've come to love with Blomkamp.

I really enjoyed Elysium. Disappointed to see that it didn't do better with audiences. Anyway, this sounds like a good time with an exceptional cast. Excited to see what Blomkamp does with a Sci-Fi comedy.
