‘District 9′ Director Shopping ‘Elysium’

A few weeks back District 9 director Neill Blomkamp unloaded the impressive “AGM Heartland” viral video that took the Web by storm (watch it below). Deadline is reporting that he’s now reteaming with his D9 star Sharlto Copley on his second sci-fi feature Elysium, a film we’re not sure is connected to the aforementioned video. Meanwhile, director Blomkamp and Media Rights Capital now need to choose a distributor. “Neil is taking meetings all over town. There is a lot of interest from every studio,” an insider tells Deadline who adds that Blomkamp is including a graphic novel in his presentation. Elysium is Blomkamp’s long-awaited story 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. So far no one else has been cast.
