Sharlto Copley has revealed he will team up with director Neill Blomkamp for a third time, starring in his next film Chappie.

The South African actor was propelled to fame in Neill's hit sci-fi comedy District 9 and will appear in his follow-up film Elysium, which is out this summer, starring Matt Damon.

Now Sharlto has posted a message on his Facebook page, announcing: "Sharlto Copley is Chappie."

Neill hasn't revealed much about Chappie, except to say it will be a science fiction comedy featuring a "ridiculous robot character in an unusual setting."

Since finding fame in District 9, Sharlto has had major roles in Hollywood films including The A-Team remake, and recently finished filming Spike Lee's Oldboy remake and Maleficent with Angelina Jolie.
