Jodie Foster In Neil Blomkamp’s Elysium

2009 Neil Blomkamp’s District 9 premiered to great reviews for the director and the film.  District 9 earned 4 Oscar nominations including one for Best Picture.

There is no story synopsis yet for Elysium but we know that it’s not a sequel to District 9, and it’s set far into the future on a distant planet.  So far Blomkamp has casted District 9 star Sharlto Copley and Matt Damon.  Deadline is now reporting that Jodie Foster will join the cast.  Surprisingly Elysium does not yet have a distributor.

District 9 was one of my favorite films of 2009 and I cannot wait to see what Neil Blomkamp has in stored for audiences this time around.
