Richard Kelly, the enigma that is he, director of a phenomenal first feature, the definition of a sleeper hit and somewhat cult picture: Donnie Darko . Then there was the abysmal Southland Tales in 2006 which seemed to be the definition of what both a studios and director should not do to next. There was also The Box in 2009 which seemed like a descent picture until half way through, it became the most over-indulgent and flawed work imaginable. Now for his next picture Kelly is heading in a more mainstream and commercial direction, with plans to write and direct the thriller Corpus Christi. Kelly will produce the picture under his Darko Entertainment banner with Eli Roth. The plot is centered on "a mentally unstable Iraq war veteran, who forges a strange friendship with his boss, a wealthy and politically ambitious owner of a supermarket chain." Not very broad but enticing and notably as Variety puts it "without heavy sci-fi or metaphysical elements." This is probably the film Kelly should have tackled post Donnie Darko.
