On the Other Hand, Can This Be Any Worse Than Southland Tales?

UK-based sales company Velvet Octopus will be launching sales in Cannes for S. Darko, billed as the sequel to the 2001 cult hit Donnie Darko. Fox has already taken North American rights.

Daviegh Chase reprises her role as Donnie's younger sister. The cast for S. Darko also includes Ed Westwick (Son Of Rambow, Gossip Girl), Briana Evigan (Step Up 2) and Justin Chatwin (Dragon Ball).

... Producers have spoken to Richard Kelly about the project but he is not involved in any official capacity at this stage.
Empahsis mine. Full release here. Link via Yair Raveh.  Oh dear.

"Donnie's not in [the new film] but there are meteorites and rabbits."

Oh, well, as long as there are meteorites and rabbits...

And also: what meteorites? Unless my memory is on the fritz, it's a plane engine that falls from the sky in Donnie Darko, not a meteorite.
