It was announced today that Sigourney Weaver will round out the cast of Neill Blomkamp’s next project, Chappie. The movie, which co-stars Hugh Jackman and Dev Patel, centers on Chappie, a robot (voiced by Sharlto Copley) who’s kidnapped (robotnapped?) by two criminals, only to become the adopted child of a weird family. There’s no word yet on who Weaver will be playing, but considering her career dealing with aliens, ghosts, and blue aliens, she’ll probably be chill.
