The 45-year-old Hollywood hunk posted a snap of his mullet on Instagram with the caption: “Day 1 on Chappie! Vincent is born, rocking the mullet. Working with Neill Blomkamp in SA. This film is rad.’’ We have to admit we’re not fans of his latest do. Hopefully he doesn’t grow too fond of it!

The Aussie actor plays the lead role in, which according to the production company, centres around Chappie, who gets kidnapped by two criminals during birth and gets adopted into a strange, dysfunctional family. His a prodigy, who also turns out is a robot.

‘‘It’s a science-fiction comedy thing, that’s as far as I can go with that,” Blomkamp told Empire about the film’s plot. He also directed District 9 and Elysium.

Filming kicked off in Joburg late last year, but Hugh joined the cast only recently. And he’s clearly having a ball of a time. The star even posted a snap of a lion while he was on safari with the caption: ‘‘What an amazing trip! Phinda Safari . . . Justin, our ranger – extraordinary!’’

Slumdog Millionaire’s Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver and our very own District 9 star Sharlto Copley also stars in the movie, along with local zef rap duo Die Antwoord, who was on set in November. The movie is due for release in March 2015.

We’re not so sure about Hugh’s mullet . . .
