    WHAT'S NEXT FOR NEILL BLOMKAMP

    Neil Blomkamp created cinematic revolutionary, if that is what you wanna labelled the phenomenon District 9 back in August. The film did not only make it to cover the production cost in first three days screening in domestic, but it went on to rake in US$ 115 million so far. District 9 has been an eye-opener to showcase the many lights of the bunch of talented young directors.

    Green Tea Movie came across this new excerpts from Variety and Slash Film - Media Rights Capital has committed to fund District 9 filmmaker Neill Blomkamp's next film. The news came with no surprise since Blomkamp has once said, "I’ve got one science fiction idea that I’m absolutely in love with, which I’m pretty sure is going to be my next film. 99% sure…It’s totally original, it’s my own story…It’s set on another planet, but it’s cool. It’s violent, very violent, and very unique hopefully. We’ll see."

    The new film will be again a sci-fi film, but the words about it are still pretty much wrapped well. The untitled science fiction flick will set on another planet and it has nothing to do with Christopher Johnson or the District 9 universe.

    “Hopefully, this will be a bit unique, very much a reflection of me. It is absolutely another science fiction film, quite different from `District 9,’ but some of the blending of genres and the tone might be within the same realm.”

    Bill Block has been tipped to produce and the production will cost a little bit north of District 9's US$ 30 million. The filmmaker plans to immediately start writing and prepping the visual effects for the film, which will begin production by the middle of next year. A distributor will be found at that time. Blomkamp definitely has an option to make a District 9 sequel afterwards if that is what he wants. - (/Film)
