Matt Damon In Talks For “Elysium”

Matt Damon is in early talks for a role in the sci-fi thriller “Elysium” for Media Rights Capital according to Deadline.

“District 9” helmer Neill Blomkamp and star Sharlto Copley are re-teaming on this project, but details on story or roles are scarce other than the action being set on a distant planet.

Blomkamp helms from his own script and will present the project to financiers next year when further cast members are locked down.
