Donnie Darko: Hollywood Premiere new additions to the IHJ gallery.
"S. Darko takes place in 1995, 7 years after the original film. It follows Donnie Darko's younger sister, Samantha, who, in the wake of his death, has found herself at age 17 with a broken family, mired in feelings of insignificance. When she and her best friend Corey are plagued by bizarre visions, they set off on a road trip to Los Angeles, following Frank's ghost. They arrive at a small town in the midst of a meteorite crash and begin to see the future.
Fisher said in a statement: "I am a great admirer of Richard Kelly's film and hope to create a similar world of blurred fantasy and reality."
Producers have spoken to Richard Kelly about the project but he is not involved in any official capacity at this stage". Source: www.sdarkothemovie.com
"Silver Nitrate Films' producer Ash R. Shah has confirmed to Upcoming Film Scores that Ed Harcourt, the British multi-instrumentalist/rock star whose albums include "Strangers" and "Beautiful Lie," has been hired to write the original score for S. Darko, the follow-up to the 2001 independent hit Donnie Darko (which featured a memorable score by Michael Andrews). Harcourt made his film scoring debut with last year's New York City Serenade (starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Chris Klein). S. Darko is helmed by Chris Fisher, whose previous credits include Dirty and Rampage: The Hillside Strangler Murders. The sequel is set seven years after Donnie Darko and tells the story about Donnie's sister, who are plagued by bizarre visions. Daveigh Chase reprises her role as Samantha Darko, other cast members include Jackson Rathbone, Ed Westwick, Justin Chatwin, Briana Evigan, James Lafferty and Elizabeth Berkley. Film will come out next year".
