A few days ago came the surprising announcement that UK distributor Velvet Octopus was beginning production on a DONNIE DARKO sequel titled S. DARKO later in the month. (FOX will hold distribution rights for the US.) Moviesonline.ca got the first look at the exclusive poster for the film, which you can check out HERE or below.
S. DARKO stars Daviegh Chase (reprising her role as Samantha Darko), Ed Westwick, Briana Evigan and Justin Chatwin. According to the Moviesonline article, "This next chapter of the Darko saga picks up with Samantha, Donnie’s younger sister, who, in the wake of his death, has found herself at 17 with a broken family, mired in feelings of insignificance, and with no aspirations for the future. The archetypal character study and genre mixing of Donnie Darko is reprised, but with a fresh spin on the roles within the Tangent Universe that warrants the telling of this darker, more jaded tale of tragedy, second chances, sacrifice and rebirth."
Shooting starts May 19th in Salt Lake City, UT with director Chris Fisher at the helm.
