Donnie Darko Sequel On The Way
Wait...what?

09 May 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: Screen Daily

submit to reddit

Why? That's all we want to know, why? Screen Daily says this morning that there is a sequel to Donnie Darko not just planned, but actually happening. If you haven't seen Donnie Darko then spoilers follow.

S. Darko will pick up seven years after the death of Donnie, with youngest Darko Samantha, now 18, and her best friend Corey being plagued by bizarre visions while on a roadtrip to Los Angeles.

Richard Kelly, director of Donnie Darko, is not involved in any official capacity and directing duties will instead be taken over by Chris Fisher (Nightstalker). Daveigh Chase, who played Samantha in Kelly's film, will reprise her role, and be joined by Ed Westwick, Briana Evigan and Justin Chatwin.

Again, we ask, why? If ever there were a film less demanding of a sequel, it's Donnie Darko. It tied its story up quite neatly, bringing it absolutely full circle. There were no loose ends. We don't even remember what Samantha did. Of course, a film can't be judged on quality until it's seen, but we fail to see the reason for a sequel's existence – other than, y'know, money.

We just have to treat this as completely seperate from Donnie Darko
To be honest, I am really looking foward to seeing this film. Why oh why!? one of the most iportant aspects of DD for me was the soundtrack, New Rave tunes at its best- Joy Division, Tears for Fears among the lot. And also the amazing tunes produced by Micahe Andrews. The whole 80's era feel to the film is made by the music. Anyways.. S.Darko is set in what? mid 90's? Holy shit, does this mean Nirvana/Sonic Youth/Yo La Tengo/Queens of the Stone Age? I suerly hope so... More

If they call it something else......
......then i don't mind the film being made. I can understand what they are trying to do by making a sequel, but as others have said and as empire has said why make a sequel when there are no loose ends. The film could work on many different levels. We could see that because donnie did die at the end of the first this has created a new disturbance in a tangent and has effected life in the future for his youngest sister who starts going through the same phase he once went through. my final thou More

It can only be bad, bad I say!!!!! DD was a classic (well, maybe I wouldn't go that far) but to make a sequel when there is no need, is so wrong! As long as it doesn't try to explain what happened in the first one it might be ok... it can't be any worse than the directors cut... More

I sent him a message on myspace about the sequel and he replied: "Also... the main evil mastermind behind S. Darko is a producer named Adam Fields.

Not that I didn't enjoy the first DD film but it was one of its kind, and in my opinion one of many films that should just be left as a legend on its shelf and not have to be dragged down by a pointless sequel. However saying that, I shall be going to see this film if it comes out in cinemas anyway just to see if my view is wrong :) More

Yet, Richard Kelly’s masterpiece ended so that each individual could create their own interpretation.

This is an awful idea, i'm so glad Kelly isn't involved (unlike the integrity transplant patient that is Neil Marshall). Donnie Darko was a perfect little self contained gem, this is wrong. However, if someone has had a good idea for a script, it could work well as a stand alone film, they shouldn't attach it to Darko, it's not like either of Samantha's Gyllenhaal siblings will be appearing in this...
