From the GATW Archives: Video Interview: Neill Blomkamp (writer/director) and Sharlto Copley (actor/badass) talk DISTRICT 9 and possible sequel!


Back at Comic-Con, I briefly spoke to Neill and Sharlto (see that HERE!) about their hush hush sci-fi flick, DISTRICT 9. For those who don’t already know this, DISTRICT 9 is the full-length follow up to Neill’s short film, ALIVE IN JOBURG.

Last week I got to speak to the nice fellas again, going more in depth with how DISTRICT 9 was created. If you’ve seen the film, then you know there are layers upon layers, so it would be easy to sit with the two and just talk for hours. Unfortunately, I only had around six minutes, so I narrowed it down to what I thought were the questions people would enjoy learning about. So, without further ado, watch and enjoy!

Please be patient while the video loads. Thank you!
