After making a big splash with his directorial debut DISTRICT 9, writer-director Neill Blomkamp returns with his latest sci-fi epic ELYSIUM hitting theaters next year.

At Comic-Con 2012, Blomkamp and star Matt Damon spoke to the press about what to expect from this previously top secret film.

“It’s a film about an orbital space station called Elysium,” explains Blomkamp during a press conference. “Earth is diseased and has been left behind and the money and resources have left with it.”

In the film Matt Damon plays a character that’s trying to get off earth and head to Elysium.

“My character is trying to get to the space station because he’s dying and it has health care,” he says, noting he loved the script so much, he did whatever it took to be a part of this film.

“The first time I met Neill, he gave me this whole graphic novel of different weapons systems and vehicles [from ELYSIUM] and I looked at the stuff and told my wife – ‘there’s no way we’re going to let this get away. So we planned our whole life around it. The level of detail that went into it was great. And after I saw DISTRICT 9, Neill went to the top of the list of people I wanted to work with and I feel so lucky it came around to me so quickly.
