Latest news on Southland Tales

Richard Kelly has been talking about how his SF film has been altered ahead of its new November 2007 release date

Filming wrapped on Southland Tales two years ago, but after a kicking at last year’s Cannes, Richard "Donnie Darko" Kelly has made a number of changes ahead of its full release.

"We showed it to the toughest audience in the world. Was that a good idea? I don't know. But it happened, and you just sort of take the best from it," director Kelly told SCI FI Wire at Comic-Con in San Diego. "[We made] a lot of editorial changes in terms of restructuring the order of scenes... We re-recorded all of Justin Timberlake's voice-over, and we added 90 new visual-effects shots."

Southland Tales also stars The Rock and Sarah Michelle Gellar, and is set in a near-future LA. The movie will hit US cinemas on 9 November. Check out the prequel saga on the official site .
