District 9 Director Working on Cyberpunk Battle Royale Off the Grid

Neill Blomkamp’s darkly funny sci-fi film District 9 left an impact on cinema in a way that few could have predicted. His follow-up films, Elysium and Chappie, cemented Blomkamp’s position as one of the industry’s most interesting creators. Now Blomkamp is making an endeavor into the video game industry with young studio Gunzilla Games. Blomkamp and Gunzilla just dropped the first trailer for Off the Grid, now confirmed to be a cyberpunk “Battle Royale 2.0” with a unique focus on narrative.
