Sony Pictures Entertainment and Media Rights Capital (MRC) have joined hands to co-produce “Chappie”, which will be directed by Neill Blomkamp.

Modi Wiczyk, co-CEO of MRC, said: “Neill is an incredibly talented and bold artist and we are proud to continue to support his work. We are looking forward to partnering with the team at Sony on ‘Chappie’.”
