CHAPPIE is an upcoming 2015 science-fiction comedy film co-written and directed by Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium). It stars Sharlto Copley as the voice of Chappie, with Dev Patel, Die Antwoord’s Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman round out the cast of the film.
Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there’s one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever.
