Richard Kelly hints of a return to the world of Donnie Darko

Coming out of nowhere is the news that Richard Kelly is interested in returning to the world of Donnie Darko.

The mind bending 2001 film it rightly considered a modern masterpiece, a Sci-Fi mystery that is still scrutinised to this day and which made a star out of Jake Gyllenhaal.

While there was a sequel made a few years later, which no one really wants to talk about and those who have seen, probably want to jump back in time and forget, in a recent interview with, Kelly has surprised fans by saying that work is underway on a return to the world of Donnie, even though what and how is quite vague.

Here is what he said:

Well, I’m probably not allowed to say anything more [about a new Donnie Darko film] than there has been an enormous amount of work completed. I’m hopeful that we might get to explore that world in a very big and exciting way. But we’ll see what happens. But there has been a lot of work done. A lot of work has been done.

Even just this little snippet has got us excited, even though it does feel that the original film was a “lightening In The Bottle” moment and any further films will be hard to capture that same essence.

We just have to wait and see.

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
