There's a crazy bit of news floating around today that the 2001 cult classic, Donnie Darko might get a sequel. According to one story, this new film would pick up "seven years after the first film when little sister Samantha Darko and her best friend Corey are now 18 and on a roadtrip to Los Angeles when they are plagued by bizarre visions."
Daveigh Chase, who originally played Donnie's sister, is on board and but that's about it from the original Darko team.
The first film earned a devoted following due to writer-director Richard Kelly's knack for eerie, strange storytelling. Dorm room conversations have never been the same ever since Kelly tantalized his fans with philosophies about time travel and alternate universes. Seriously, people have spent a lot of time breaking down this movie! It's hard to imagine these folks would be happy with a sequel without his involvement or at the very least his blessing.
