I recently heard some very vague word-of-mouth that he was writing his next script, and it again had something to do with time travel.

I can't wait to see his new stuff.

Kelly is working on the film called "Knowing". He's set to direct and is doing the rewrite of the script. Check it out for more info: http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hp&cf=prev&id=1808404782

Last thing I heard he was working on a project for/with James Cameron, set in a snowy location.

I'm sorry, I really enjoyed Donnie Darko, but at times the dialogue seemed amateurish and cliched. Occassionally, it made me cringe. It reminded me of how I used to write in 9th Grade. It was a wonderful idea, but definitely could have benefitted from a rewrite.

That was my impression also...especially Drew Barrymore's dialogue...I remember her whole performance being pretty bad.  I liked the idea of the movie, but I didn't really get into it.  I want to give it a second chance after hearing how much other people loved it.

But I think that was what was so good, the way the movie really seemed to speak from the point of view of a teenager, and since it suggested dream/fiction it would be appropriate to not be quite a thirty year old's view/mode of expression, but to use cliche and '9th Grade' level language and ideas. I do think it was intentional, because overall the film worked that line between sophisticated/adult and simplistic/immature (implying that the two couldn't really be separated for either the adults -eg Barrymore - or the teenagers) and Donnie's character and the tone of the film were convincing and charismatic because of it.

True, true, true! Donnie Darko had such a great use of music. I've always considered "Under the Milky Way" to be a haunting song, but the movie made it even cooler.

There are lots of great examples like this. PTA of course is great at picking music to go with his film.

And while I'm thinking about it, how many of you were duped into "DYING to see that movie!!!" when the Volkswagen "Mr. Blue Sky" commercial aired in theaters this summer???

speaking of the Mr. Blue Sky commercial, I thought it was kind of cheap that it got ripped off by those new Adaptation commercials with the same song

kelly's next official project was supposed to be 'knowing', based on a script he rewrote.  he's supposed to be directing it too, but i think it's sort of fallen between the cracks.

It was some ad agency.

Great article about "Bubble Boy" is here:
