Oh hey, Richard Kelly, remember him? He's the director who came out of the gate with promise after "Donnie Darko, and then squandered that goodwill with the bellyflop that was "Southland Tales" and then the horror movie no one saw called "The Box." For the past few years he's been trying to get "Corpus Christi" off the ground, and in fact, just over a year ago, he was hoping to pull together the financing to shoot it last summer. Obviously that didn't happen but a couple fellow genre specialists are helping him to get the movie rolling.

Well, Richard Kelly at least gets an A for effort. Despite them both being critical and box office turds, "The Box" and "Southland Tales" were nothing if not ambitious and we say, if you're gonna fail, might was as well fail big. That being said, Kelly is wisely stepping away from the supernatural and metaphysical for his next effort, one that will hopefully live up to the promise he displayed in "Donnie Darko."
