Chappie tells the tale of a boy kidnapped and raised as the adopted son of a couple that are themselves quite strange and dysfunctional. The lad shows early signs of brilliance with certain special gifts and abilities. What makes Chappie different from all those around him is the fact that he is an android.
Sharlto Copley (District 9, Europa Report) re-teams with Blomkamp to provide the voice and physicality as the animated robotic Chappie. Also on hand are Dev Patel (Newsroom) and Jose Pablo Cantillo (The Walking Dead).
Chappie, currently filming, is geared for a March 6, 2015 theatrical release.
