I had heard rumors that there was a Richard Kelly-less straight to DVD sequel of Donnie Darko coming out, but I’d also heard rumors that hell froze over and they captured Bigfoot alive, so I figured it was false. Well, it appears I’m wrong, judging by this teaser trailer which I’m praying to God is some sort of fan made joke.
But I don’t think it is, and that means there is in fact a Richard Kelly-less straight to DVD sequel of Donnie Darko coming out. It’s about his sister, played by creepy Ring girl Daveigh Chase, and i believe it’s supposed to be about the events of the first movie told from her perspective. I think this may prove a tad difficult seeing as Jake Gyllenhal is nowhere near this project, but hey, whatever it takes so you can save on filming costs by recycling scenes from the original movie. Like you did in this trailer. Which is all scenes from the original movie.
