No Richard Kelly For Donnie Darko Sequel
Posted 08.05.09 by Ryan
Rumors of a Donnie Darko sequel involving director Richard Kelly, who wrote and directed the original Donnie Darko but had no part in the straight-to-DVD sequel S. Darko: a Donnie Darko Tale, found their way online months ago. MTV asked if Kelly would return for a third Darko and his response was an emphatic debunking:
Absolutely not. I know nothing about it and I would never have any involvement with any existing or future sequel to Donnie Darko ever — ever! Never ever ever ever would I be involved with anything like that.
So, just to be clear ... that's a no, right?
Kelly's most recent work, The Box, an adaptation of a Richard Matheson (I Am Legend) short story, is due in theaters November 6.
