Thumbs Up Given to Neill Blomkamp's Next Sci-Fi Film


Media Rights Capital is committed to fund the yet to be titled movie, in addition to give the director/writer of 'District 9' creative freedom.

Experiencing success with "District 9", director/writer Neill Blomkamp is set up to develop another original sci-fi movie. According to Variety's BFDealMemo, Media Rights Capital has committed to fund the filmmaker's next project, untitled Neill Blomkamp project, and given him the creative freedom he needed.

"MRC is letting me make the film I want to make and that is by far the most important thing here," the 30-year-old said of the collaboration. "The film will hopefully be commercial, but it is very much a singular film, that comes directly from me. 'District 9' was a bit different. I was learning the process then, under Peter Jackson's wing. He had control, but was awesome enough to let me make the film I wanted to. Bill's producing this with MRC, so the difference is Pete's involvement."

Describing what he has in mind on the new project, Blomkamp went on, "Hopefully, this will be a bit unique, very much a reflection of me." He then detailed, "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."

This yet-to-be-titled feature project will be set on another planet. Of it, Blomkamp told Slash Film at Comic-Con, "It's set on another planet, but it's cool. It's violent, very violent, and very unique hopefully." The filmmaker is expected to immediately start writing and preparing the visual effects with the aim to kick off the production by mid-2010. Bill Block will produce.

Neill Blomkamp made his breakthrough as a director with summer 2009 hit "District 9". The sci-fi movie is an adaptation of his short film "Alive in Joburg". The story revolves around aliens that come to the Earth as refugees. Since its release on August 14, the film which cost around $30 million has collected as much as $184.5 million worldwide.
