Neill Blomkamp’s Sci-Fi Comedy Chappie To Feature Die Antwoord As Themselves

Neill Blomkamp is going to do what David Fincher ultimately didn’t and put Yolandi Visser in a movie.  According to her Die Antwoord colleague Ninja, the band will appear as themselves in Blomkamp’s next movie, Chappie.

Die Burger report that the film is going to shoot in Johannesburg between September and December this year, with a $50 million budget. It’s not clear where from, but it’s at least good to hear Blomkamp has another project on the blocks.

Elysium is set for release this August. All signs are good, and the footage I’ve seen is an exciting advance on District 9 – a bolder idea, brilliantly and richly executed.

Thanks to Seppe for the link.

Now, check out this Die Antwoord video for what constitutes either the first clue to this casting or a bit of self fulfilling prophecy.
