Kelly Offers Southland Update

Richard Kelly, director of the apocalyptic SF movie Southland Tales, wrote on his MySpace.com blog that he is nearing the end of post-production on the long-delayed film.

"We are about halfway through completing all of the new visual effects," Kelly wrote. "We have to deliver everything by the end of summer. I have to tell everyone that the amount of visual-effects work being added to the film is significant, ... and I am so grateful for the work being done by Thomas Tannenberger and his team at Gradient VFX in Venice Beach [Calif.]."

Kelly added that the movie will soon have a trailer. "I can confirm that a company has been hired by Sony to begin work on a trailer," he said. "The release date will be announced very soon."

Kelly is slated to begin his next movie soon. "We are gearing up to start production on The Box in November, ... shooting in Richmond, Va., ... starring the one and only Ms. Cameron Diaz," Kelly wrote. "I couldn’t be more excited, ... and expect more casting announcements soon." The Box is an SF movie, based on an unpublished story by genre giant Richard Matheson, about a couple who receive a mysterious box that will grant them a wish, at the cost of someone’s life.
