Southland Tales Gets the Greenlight on VFX!

April 4, 2007

Southland Tales

The project from Donnie Darko writer/director Richard Kelly that we've been following closely for a while now - Southland Tales - has finally been given the greenlight from Sony for the extra funding and final round of visual effects. Back in February Kelly posted an update saying the film was currently out looking for some more financing to finish the visual effects and the good word has come today that Sony is getting it all to him.

He says in the blog post on MySpace that this is very good news and that they'll now be able to finish it properly as he wants it to be. He says the first public screening (I'm guessing test screening) will be mid-summer, but there is still not a solid release date yet, but we can only assume somewhat thereafter - I'm guessing August/September timeframe.

It's great to finally see a studio come through and support a project like this and get Richard Kelly what he needs to really finish it and turn it into exactly the final film he wants. Just last month Sony was getting in a lot of trouble when one of the execs from the studio took a project himself and edited it. We can only hope that they're aren't doing this behind the scenes here either, but I don't think that's the case.

And to fulfill more of your Southland Tales needs, there are two new clips up with a discussion with Richard Kelly and the rest of the crew on Southland Tales and Donnie Darko from the Film Independent Director's Series - both of them can be found here.
