Jodie Foster joins Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley in Elysium
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I feel bad for Jodie Foster after her experiences with THE BEAVER. The film looks great and it seems like Jodie really found something with that story, Mel Gibson’s performance and her directing. Unfortunately, Mel went crazy a few months before it was supposed to come out and now any chance it had of being financially or critically successful are out the window. But she’s rebounding nicely with a lead role in Neill Blomkamp’s ELYSIUM. She joins Matt Damon and Sharlto Copley in the science fiction film.
We don’t really know what the film is about other than it takes place on another planet and deals with many intertwining political ideas. Blomkamp, as you know, directed the politically charged sci-fi film DISTRICT 9, which also starred Sharlto Copley. If he can continue the creative success from that film, then ELYSIUM should be a great film.
