In today's most terrifyingly awesome news: Hugh Jackman, aka Wolverine aka Jean Valjean, was announced as the lead protagonist in the upcoming Neill Blomkamp film Chappie
. The South African creative mind that brought us the dystopian worlds of District 9
, also hired fellow Saffers Die Antwoord (Ninja and Yolandi Visser) as the Aussie's primary adversaries.
From what we've read, the low-budget sci-fi film centers on Chappie, a robot voiced by Sharlto Copley (District 9
) who is reprogrammed to carry out the orders of Die Antwoord's evil gang's deeds.
So add a robot to the mix below, and you have yourself a Chappie
The fine folks at Screen Junkies
put created their own visual guess of what Chappie
will look like:
Now the only question that remains is: Will Hugh's voice be featured on an upcoming Die Antwoord song? We can only hope. We can totally imagine Jean Valjean singing a verse on "Fatty Boom Boom".
