Richard Kelly Shoots in Richmond
We told you back in August 2006 that Donnie Darko director (and Midlothian High grad) Richard Kelly was in town scouting locations for his next film (and he was kind enough to swing by Velocity Comics for a signing while he was here). Well, according to the director's MySpace blog, it's now official: Production on The Box will begin in November, starring Cameron Diaz and filming in Richmond. As for Kelly's long-aborning and much-anticipated second film, Southland Tales, the director notes that a release date will be announced soon.
If you can't wait, don't forget that three graphic-novel prequels to Southland Tales, by Kelly and artist Brett Weldele, are now available for your reading pleasure.
