“Donnie Darko” and “The Box” writer/director Richard Kelly will next shoot the contemporary thriller “Corpus Christi” reports Variety.
The Texas-set story concerns a mentally unstable Iraq war veteran who forges a strange friendship with his boss, the wealthy and politically ambitious owner of a supermarket chain.
The film is a far more traditional narrative than Kelly’s usual mind-bending fare. Kelly, Eli Roth and Sean McKittrick will produce and shooting will kick off on location in July.
Casting is under way and an announcement is expected within the next month.
