Southland Tales

I loved Donnie Darko - and I even forgave director Richard Kelly for the completely unnecessary George Lucas style re-release of the Directors Cut that featured nothing beneficial. I remember reading somewhere that his followup project (Darko was in 2001 mind you) was going to have something to do with childrens drawings, some psychotic episodes, and a bit of sci-fi. Well, turns out that the next project is something called Southland Tales - featuring Sarah Michelle Gellar, Seann William Scott, and.. The Rock! Granted, Janeane Garofalo, Jason Lee, and Amy Poehler are also supposedly involved but not as main characters. According to this, the film will be preceeded by 6 graphic novels that give all the background and setup story for a film Kelly describes as "a strange hybrid of the sensibilities of Andy Warhol and Philip K. Dick." Umm.. yea right.. with Seann William Scott. I'm calling one-hit wonder on Richard Kelley but I'd love to be proven wrong.

  • You'll be able to judge him earlier than Southland Tales. Domino comes out this summer which he wrote, Tony Scott directs. I've heard it's really good, but the trailer doesn't do much for me.

  • i've been checking the southland tales site on and off for awhile... i'll admit it, i'm pretty damn interested in this movie. didn't know the rock was going to be in it, but i was actually surprised how decent of an actor he was in 'be cool' (he was the only decent part of that movie, actually...)
