Previous reports stated that Demonic was filmed with on-set COVID-19 protocols in British Columbia, Canada during Summer 2020, with its cast mainly comprised of Canadian actors. An official plot is yet to be released, but it will supposedly feature a “strong sci-fi and VFX component in keeping with Blomkamp’s previous three movies.” Joining Blomkamp are Deadpool editor Julian Clarke and Director of Photography Byron Kopman, and the movie is expected to be finished this Spring 2021.
The District 9 and Elysium director was scheduled to shoot his next film The Inferno in 2020, but the pandemic forced its delay to 2021. Blomkamp’s last feature film dates back to 2015’s Chappie.
Stay tuned for a trailer and release date for Demonic.
Elsewhere in entertainment, Eric André’s Bad Trip is premiering on Netflix in March 2021.
