Sharlto Copley - Elysium

You’ll probably know Sharlto Copley best for his work on District 9 or The A-Team where he played Howling Mad Murdock. We got to chat with him back then and it was a pleasure to catch up with him once again at the Summer of Sony junket in Cancun, Mexico for his new movie, Elysium. Elysium is directed by his long-time friend Neill Blomkamp who also wrote and directed District 9. In the interview, we get to hear from Sharlto what it was like reuniting with Neill, how they’ve both changed and what it was like to play the bad-guy.

We also find out how Neill took to working with Matt Damon and Jodie Foster and how he asked Copley to tone down the ad-lib although from the sounds of it that didn’t last long! Elysium is high our must-see movies of 2013 and if you’ve missed our coverage so far, click right this way. We’ve also had interviews with Neill, Alice Braga and Wagner Moura all of which you can see here.

Elysium hits UK cinemas tomorrow 21st August and keep your eyes peeled later today where we’ll have our interview with lead actor Matt Damon.
