What is Neill Blomkamp up to? A new tease gives us hints...
Neill Blomkamp is carefully working on his follow-up to DISTRICT 9, allegedly titled ELYSIUM. Trouble is, we know almost nothing about that film, including when it may begin filming. But Slashfilm uncovered a Blomkamp video in the new iPad version of Wired magazine that may give us some hints (or may just be a clever ruse).
The video is presented without context (aside from a "Video By: Neill Blomkamp" credit) on a full page next to the TRON: LEGACY cover article. Take a look at the vid itself and then hit me up on the other side and we'll dig a little deeper.
Very "Montauk Monster" eh? If you blinked and missed it, the stamp on the side of the creature reads, "18.12 AGM Heartland Pat Pend USA." Slashfilm did some crack reporting and found that AGM Heartland was trademarked in October for "an online website with video, audio and textual content and images featuring characters and storylines about a fictional genetic engineering company."
It doesn't look like this is Blomkamp's next feature project but certainly something fun on the side (strangely, a number of URLs associated with the name AGM Heartland are widely available). Any ideas?
