Another star for the sci-fi film...
Hugh Jackman has joined Sharlto Copley, Ninja Visser and Yolandi Visser in Neill Blomkamp's next film. Jackman told Screen Daily that he's appearing in the District 9 and Elysium director's film, noting, "But I am doing a role in Neill's new film, called Chappie, which we shoot in Johannesburg. I'm there for a couple of weeks at the beginning of next year."
Bleeding Cool reports that Jackman is likely playing a CEO who ends up on the wrong side of the gangsters who steal Chappie, a robot imbued with artificial intelligence.
