Bourne superstar Matt Damon is set to join Sharlto Copley in Neill Blomkamp's mystery-shrouded follow-up to District 9.
After such a startling debut, it's no surprise that Blomkamp is attracting A-list talent for his next venture.
Next to nothing is known about the plot of Elysium, though it is expected to be set on another planet in the far-flung future, and it's apparently not linked to District 9 at all.
Whether or not it has anything to do with a creepy, atmospheric viral that Blomkamp recently filmed is also unknown.
The project adds to an eclectic line-up for Damon: he'll next be seen as Texas ranger LaBoeuf in the Coen Brothers' hotly-anticipated Western True Grit, and he's then got Philip K. Dick adaptation The Adjustment Bureau, as well as Steven Soderbergh projects Contagion and Liberace.
Needless to stay we'll be keeping a close eye on anything Blomkamp turns his attention to, and we'll be eagerly awaiting further details on this project.
