BIOGRAPHY (from Wikipedia)
Neill Blomkamp is a South African–Canadian film and advertisement director, writer, producer and animator. Blomkamp employs a documentary-style, hand-held, cinéma vérité technique, blending naturalistic and photo-realistic computer-generated effects. He is best known as the co-writer and director of the critically acclaimed science fiction film District 9 and the dystopian science fiction film Elysium.
After Elysium, he started work on his next sci-fi film Chappie, based on his own short, Tetra Vaal.
In early 2015, it was confirmed that Blomkamp will direct a new film in the Alien franchise. The film is expected to be a direct sequel to the 1986 film Aliens, rather than 1997’s Alien Resurrection.
