South African star Sharlto Copley, who made his acting debut in the excellent Neill Blomkamp sci-fi action thriller 'District 9' back in 2009 and then followed it up by getting cast as Murdock in Joe Carnahan's 'The A-Team' has just been tied to two new projects. First up Copley (below) has just joined the new Gonzalo López-Gallego ('Apollo 18') helmed horror 'Open Grave' to play the lead. 'Open Grave' revolves around a man who wakes up in the wilderness, in a pit full of dead bodies, with no memory who must determine if the murderer is one of the strangers who rescued him, or if he himself is the killer. In addition to this casting news Copley has also been signed up to play a villainous role in Spike Lee's 'Old Boy' remake.
