    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 and Elysium, 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, Elysium) 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".
