Sarah Michelle GellarSarah Michelle Gellar - "Southland Tales" Movie Script Pops Up
Saturday 24 September 2005, by Webmaster
Southland Tales The Rock and Sarah Michelle Gellar go at it. A while back when we posted this image of The Rock kissing Sarah Michelle Gellar on the set of Southland Tales we mentioned that little was known about the film. Well, we have recently been alerted that you can find out more on this Richard Kelly film by going to Richard-Kelly.net. This site offers some great insight on the film but, as far as I can tell, Joblo may have the better insight when it comes to the script.
Southland Tales Script
The good people over at Joblo have gotten a scoop from some one who has read the script for Southland Tales. In the report the person claims that the film sticks to Richard Kelly form but has much, much, more going on. Check out a snippet below:
SOUTHLAND TALES is...shit, where I do begin? Well it’s really complex and dark and funny and philosophical and every other adjective that was great about DONNIE DARKO, but on a much, much bigger scale. Let me set the stage: it’s the fourth of July weekend in the year 2008, two years after a pair of nukes slammed into the Texan-Mexican border. The war that ensued in the Middle East put a huge strain on oil relations. Enter the Treer Company (www.treer-products.com), which has apparently built the world’s first perpetual motion machine. It’s supposed to solve all of the fuel problems and is run by a thing called “Fluid Karma.” Yeah, I don’t get it either.
The first main character we meet is Krysta Now! (Sarah Michelle Gellar) the porn star with very ambitious dreams of mass marketing herself. She approaches a female porn director about a plan she has involving her new boyfriend, Boxer Santaros (The Rock). Apparently he has amnesia and doesn’t remember the last two years. The only thing he has is a screenplay he wrote himself called “The Power,” which is all about the end of the world. Apparently he is also the husband of the daughter of a presidential candidate (Mandy Moore) but she hasn’t seen him in weeks and he doesn’t remember her. Krysta plans exposing his meltdown and potential election-changing story while reaping the benefits to launch her chain of energy drinks, t-shirts, purses, etc.
Could Southland Tales be a bigger mind fuck than Donnie Darko? Read the entire script report at Joblo and make your own impressions.
Southland Tales will be released to theatres some time in 2006.
