What is Neill Blomkamp up to? A new tease gives us hints...

Nov. 23, 2010by: Mike Sampson

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?

That creature looks like Mozenrath's Xerxes

I'm excited for this thing. I absolutely loved District 9.

depressing?

That is a horrible opinion of the movie... "the lead character was an asshole" I dont think Blomkamp wanted to make you to want to fuck him...

District 9 was great but I was kind of hoping he'd movie away from the overused handheld stuff. I liked the second half of D9 more than the first and I think that definitely played a part. But who knows if this is actually even a sequence from the film or what the hell it leads to but I'm looking forward to seeing what Blomkamp's got cooking. Also, wasn't D9 2 supposed to come out in 2012 or is that not happening any more.

Genetic Engineering is a really fascinating and relevant subject and since Splice apparently sucked something awful (haven't seen it yet) I personally am in need of a good "oh God what have we created" flick. Where's this generations "The Fly?" Hope that's where this is going.

I can understand wanting to investigate something super stranger like that, and maybe poking it with a stick, but putting your freaking fingers in its mouth? Jeez.

D9 was good, but very over rated. Found it annoying as hell really, especially that main alien who, if he was human, everyone would want to see killed.
I'll check this out though cause D9 was a solid film, jsut not the amazing thing movie douches made it to be

You're accusing other people of being "movie douches?"

Irony alert.

I'd agree that he's overrated to the extent that he doesn't have much of a track record. I don't think District 9 was overrated. It was supposed to be depressing - that was the whole point of the movie. The the lead character was supposed to be unlikable, at least in the beginning of the movie. If you didn't care about the "bug" looking aliens, you probably identify more with the antagonists oppressing them in the story.

I agree, that your comments seem to ignore the value of the clip on

I agree, that your comments seem to ignore the value of the clip on its own merits, and seems like a cheap trolling towards the majority of the people here who liked it.

You've NEVER made fanboy comments on this site, so don't worry about sounding hypocritical.

Not much else can really be said that Smooveluv did not cover. So I will just second that.
