Sharlto Copley

Don't get too excited, this isn't Neill Blomkamp's new project retitled, it's another sci-fi movie that Sharlto Copley is in that he just finished shooting. ComingSoon found a first look photo in the latest Entertainment Weekly for The Europa Report and scanned it. Directed by Ecuadorian filmmaker Sebastián Cordero, Copley stars as one of six astronauts who make the arduous journey to Jupiter's frigid, glacial moon Europa in search of extraterrestrial life. How come I don't remember hearing too much about this, because it sounds awesome! Right after making this, he'll go onto Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi Elysium, too. View the scan below!

The Europa Report Scan

"The only thing more intimidating and unpredictable than the trip itself is what the team will encounter upon arrival..." Always an ominous tease before the long wait until we see this movie, but I'm hooked, looks great. Europa's international cast includes Michael Nyqvist, Anamaria Marinca, Christian Camargo, Daniel Wu and Karolina Wydra. It mentions "the Brooklyn set of the just-wrapped movie", so they've already finished shooting, which is a good sign we might see this soon. Sebastián Cordero (Pescador, Rage, Chronicles) is directing from a script by Philip Gelatt. No word on any release, but we'll keep you updated.

    Eugenio Caballero is supposedly doing the production design (Pans labyrinth) so very interested to see how this pans out.

    For once, a movie gets the casting right; except for perhaps Sunshine. The diversity displayed in the group of astronauts is so important. I hope this movie is as good as it sounds.

    THE EUROPA REPORT is the title I think and not "project" :) But it sounds good and hope to see it soon.
