Short of yesterday’s leak of some clips for the film, it’s been a few weeks since we’ve heard anything about Richard Kelly’s anticipated “Donnie Darko” follow-up “Southland Tales”. Now, Kelly has updated his official blog with the following update about the trailer and status of the film itself:
“We are in the final week of our mix and Digital Intermediate on “Southland Tales,” so I have been working long, long hours. The film is basically finished by the end of the day this Friday.
Sony is putting the finishing touches on the trailer… and it should premiere sometime in the first week of September. I have seen it and I can tell you that it is very action-packed, features three songs from the soundtrack, the entire cast of characters and a lot of one-liners. Very exciting! Can’t wait for everyone to see it.
Expect more updates soon about the graphic novel compilation book and our soundtrack deal. We will be screening the film for the very first time in the coming weeks.”
