Blomkamp directed the film from a screenplay he has written with Terri Tatchell.

In theaters March 6, 2015, the film will star Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Ninja and Yolandi Visser, voices of the South African Zef counter-culture movement and members of rap-rave duo Die Antwoord, as the two gangsters.
