At this point, no plot details have been revealed for Neill Blomkamp's directorial follow-up to District 9 titled Elysium. It is rumored to take place on another planet 100 years into the future. Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley are signed to star. And Jodie Foster has been attached to the project in the press, though she /elysium-has-not-signed-jodie-foster/came out earlier this month to say she isn't confirmed for Elysium at this time.

Matt Damon has offered a bit more information on the anticipated, yet highly secretive sci-fi thriller, revealing that Neill Blomkamp is building a whole new world for Elysium. The actor seems quite excited about coming onto the project.

"I've never done anything quite like this and I kind of responded to what's out there and what's in and what's good. The movie is going to be good, he showed me basically the entire world which he's going to build and it's really, really exciting. And I can't wait!"
