Hugh Jackman will follow Prisoners and X-Men: Days Of Future Past with a role alongside Sharlto Copley in Neill Blomkamp’s next sci-fi Chappie.
Jackman confirmed the news at a press conference for his new film Prisoners, as reported by ScreenDaily.
“Yes, that’s true. 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.”
Chappie is the story of a robot (voiced by Copley) who is kidnapped by two gangsters (South African musicians Die Antwoord). Jackman’s role is as yet unconfirmed.
