Southland Tales to finally see light of day
07.25.07 by REELZ
Southland Tales, Richard Kelly's long-delayed follow-up to his 2001 indie hit Donnie Darko, is now set for a November 9th release, Variety reports. Originally slated to open in 2006, Southland Tales was targetted for extensive re-editing after a less-than-stellar debut at Cannes last year.
I had the chance to visit the set of Southland Tales in September of 2005, where I chatted with several members of the film's impressively eclectic cast, including Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Seann William Scott. Remarkably, none of them had the faintest clue as to what the film was about, which is never a good sign.
Director Richard Kelly is scheduled to appear at this week's annual San Diego Comic-Con, where he'll hopefully shed some light as to what exactly we can expect when Southland Tales arrives in theaters in November.
