Cult classics rise from the ashes of box office failures to become certain film canon staples in their own right, and, of those, Donnie Darko is a force of nature. It’s the kind of movie you watch with your high school friends late at night, or with your college friends who are astonished that you never saw it in high school. Its director Richard Kelly hasn’t lost any of that Donnie Darko fever yet, as he has some ideas to make a(nother), “more ambitious” sequel.
This is a match made in crazy-movie heaven. Richard Kelly, the writer-director behind 'Donnie Darko' and Southland Tales,' will be writing and directing 'Amicus,' which has Nicolas Cage set to star. It's a true life story about murder and justice, with Cage playing a lawyer (which - to be fair - doesn't sound that out there).
