Neill Blomkamp has recently stepped behind the camera again to film an entire supernatural horror movie during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

According to Deadline, the "under-the-radar" movie was filmed in British Columbia over the summer with on-set COVID-19 protocols in place. Blomkamp is said to have penned the script for the movie, though plot details are being kept under wraps for the time being. The report adds that the movie is something that Blomkamp has "always wanted to make and is expected to be finished around spring next year."

Backed by AGC Studios, Blomkamp enlisted long-time collaborator Julian Clarke to edit the movie while Byron Kopman boarded the project as the director of photography. The cast for the movie is said to be made up of mostly Canadian actors and it is reported to have a "strong sci-fi and VFX component in keeping with Blomkamp's previous three movies."

"Blomkamp is said to have penned the script for the movie"

This is a bit of a caution sign for me. Blomkamp and his partner Terri Tatchell don't seem to have the greatest track record when it comes to writing dialogue. Yes District 9 was amazing, but most of the movie was ad-libbed by Sharlto Copley.

Dialogue in Elysium and Chappie was not very good. In fact, I couldn't even sit through the entire Chappie movie.
