Everyone's going to have a shit attack over the proposed sequel to 2001's cult hit DONNIE DARKO, tentatively entitled S. DARKO. It was the UK based production company named Velvet Octopus who set forth the sequel wheels and sadly it was Fox who snapped up the North American rights. Time can only tell how this is going to end up.
Hordes of emo-tastic children born in the '90's will be vowing to pierce the hearts of whomever gets behind the project. We know that former lead, Jake Gyllenhaal will not be returning, but actress Daviegh Chase will reprise her role as Donnie's younger sister. Woo.
At least I can praise the fact that Jena Malone isn't going to be returning either, but instead we'll get a chance to see a little more of Briana Evigan, who (make fun of me if you like) has some potential for going on to a successful hottie career. So what if her introduction to audiences was in STEP UP 2: THE STREETS? The girl is FINE. And as we all well know, sometimes a good looking woman can make an unanticipated disaster a little less agonizing.
