Talk about a follow-up.

According to Deadline, it appears as though Neill Blomkamp has gotten himself one hell of a actress to join his upcoming film, ELYSIUM.

The outlet is reporting that Oscar winner Jodie Foster will be returning to the world of sci-fi films, and has joined the hotly anticipated film. The film already features DISTRICT 9 star Sharlto Copley, as well as Matt Damon, and honestly, that’s all we really know about the film at this point.

As far as plot goes, we do know that the film will be an action film set on a different planet, and besides the cast, we have been left relatively blind with regards to what to expect from the film. Personally, while I wasn’t the biggest fan of Blomkamp’s DISTRICT 9, this does sound like it will be one hell of a film.

Foster will next be seen in the upcoming Mel Gibson starrer, THE BEAVER, a film she also directed. She also has the upcoming Roman Polanski film, GOD OF CARNAGE, which is getting ready to shoot. The addition of Foster definitely adds a lot of weight to this already anticipated project.
