Matt Damon Booking Trip to Neill Blomkamp’s ‘Elysium’

Matt Damon is in early negotiations to star in Neill Blomkamp’s scifi film Elysium for Media Rights Capital. Damon will join District 9‘s Sharlto Copley in a film that is shrouded in secrecy. 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. No other details have been revealed, although there is an interesting viral video that may, or may not be related.
