Hugh Jackman has broke the news that he'll play a part in Neil Blomkamp's Chappie while promoting Prisoners at the Zurich Film Festival. "I am doing a role in Neill’s new film, called Chappie, which we shoot in Johannesburg," the X-Men: Days Of Future Past actor revealed. "I’m there for a couple of weeks at the beginning of next year." The movie will also star Blomkamp regular Sharlto Copley, who'll play the title role (via motion capture) of a law enforcement robot who is stolen and reprogrammed by a couple of gangsters played by Ninja and Yolandi Visser of Die Antwoord. The Newsroom's Dev Patel will also star. According to Bleeding Cool, Jackman will likely play "a CEO who ends up on the wrong side of the gangsters. He’s apparently quite a resourceful character, though." Chappie is based on Blomkamp's short film Tetra Vaal, which you can see below.
