Neill Blomkamp’s next film, Chappie, is inspired by his short film Tetra Vaal, it tells the story of two gangsters who steal a robot and change his programming to use its artificial intelligence for their criminal plans. The robot will be voiced by Sharito Copley and Ninja and Yolandi Visser are lined up to play the criminals.

Chappie is due to begin filming next year but the question remains to be answered whether it’ll match up to these evil robots.

5. SID 6.7 – Virtuosity

Virtuosity stars Russell Crowe as SID 6.7, a psychopathic robot serial killer with Denzel Washington as Parker Barnes, a former police officer who is incarcerated after he killed the man who murdered his wife and child. Initially, SID 6.7 is confined to virtual reality, but the intelligence is transferred into a robot, meaning that he’s free to kill at will. Barnes is offered his freedom if he’s able to track and capture SID 6.7.

Despite the two big name leads, Virtuosity made a loss at the box office and was generally poorly received. Nevertheless, it was nominated for Best Picture at the Sitges Film Festival.
