Edgar Ramirez in Domino

It has been over a year since we heard a single thing about Richard Kelly's next project, a "contemporary thriller" entitled CORPUS CHRISTI. The last movie we had from Kelly was THE BOX, a soulless and missed opportunity of a movie, meaning that despite whatever love I may have for DONNIE DARKO my faith in Kelly is riding rather low right now.  But that faith has been given a bit of a booster shot with today's news that Edgar Ramirez (CARLOS) has signed on to play "Paciencia De La Rosa, an Iraqi war veteran with severe post-traumatic stress disorder who forges a dangerous alliance with a wealthy industrialist in Texas."

As with his previous three movies, Kelly wrote the script for CORPUS CHRISTI.  Robert Rodriguez and his Quick Draw Productions will back the project, along with some help from Eli Roth.  On an interesting side note, Ramirez' first English language film (DOMINO) was also written by Kelly.  You can see him next as Ares in WRATH OF THE TITANS on March 30th.

I wonder if maybe Donnie Darko set the bar too high and he's trying too hard?

Not bad, might be interesting. But whatever you say, I liked "The Box"....its not game changing or even that much impactful, but nowadays I try to give a pass to the movies that are actually *original*, not a [link] etc etc and atleast try to think out of the box (heh).

Not that original dude. It's adapted from a Richard Matheson short story that had already been adapted before.

Yes, but the way it was adapted was different than any of the previous versions. That's what made it original. However, some of the twists that Richard Kelly added to this classic story was partly responsible for the film's problems. As is typical of him, there was far too much in the plot that verged on the ridiculous. Unfortunately, Richard Kelly's downfall is his over complicated ideas that fail to come together. The only time it worked was with Donnie Darko.

Great actor.

He was amazing in the HBO movie Carlos. But Richard Kelly after Donnie Darko (maybe a fluke) has been awful.
