District 9’s Blomkamp Readies Next Project

“District 9” writer-director Neill Blomkamp is teaming with Media Rights Capital on an untitled sci-fi project says Variety.

Blomkamp plans to begin work on writing and preparing the visual effects for the production which will have a modest budget but expected to cost notably more than the $30 million spent on “District 9”.

Blomkamp claims to have chosen MRC as it allows him to make the film without interference or compromise. Shooting aims to kick off mid-2010.
