Posted by: Zack Bruce
Neill Blomkamp’s super secretive ELYSIUM is looking to add another member to the cast. According to Variety, Diego Luna is in talks to join the sci-fi film. If he signs on, Luna will be co-star to an already stellar cast that includes Matt Damon, Jodie Foster, Sharlto Copley, William Fichtner, Wagner Moura and Alice Braga.
Luna is up for the role of Julio. In the script, Julio is best friend to the lead character played by Damon.
The film is set 100-years in the future with aliens and humans battling it out. Of course, there will be some sort of social allegory interweaved into the plot. Foster will be playing the head of state to an alien planet. These are the few details that anyone really knows aside from rumors passed across the internet. Syd Mead, who did the set design on BLADE RUNNER will be making his return to sci-fi to work on the set for this film.
