Hugh Jackman has confirmed a role in Neill Blomkamp's (District 9, Elysium) next sci-fi feature Chappie, set to film in Johannesburg next year.
"I am doing a role in Neill’s new film, called Chappie, which we shoot in Johannesburg," was all the actor revealed to Screen Daily at the Zurich Film Festival.
Jackman will join other confirmed cast members Sharlto Copley and Ninja and Yolandi Visser of South African rap-rave duo Die Antwoord in Blomkamp's film about "a robot (voiced by Copley) imbued with artificial intelligence who is stolen by two local gangsters (Ninja and Visser) who want to use him for their own nefarious purposes."
Chappie has a planned release date of March 27, 2015.
