Yesterday I got a chance to sit down with Neill Blomkamp at Comic-Con 2009 to talk about his upcoming film, the Peter Jackson produced movie which is about to hit theaters is August. Neill has done what many film-makers dream to do — made a short film that got the attention of an A-list Director, who then decided to take him under his wing and let him make a huge studio movie however the hell he wanted to.

Check out the interview below…

District 9 is in theaters August 14th. We got to see a 7 minute clip today which was absoluely mind-blowing.
