Richard Kelly to Finish Southland Tales

ON

Writer/director Richard Kelly has announced that he’ll finally get to finish Southland Tales:

So we have finally gotten the greenlight from Sony for the additional round of visual effects for Southland Tales. This is VERY GOOD NEWS for the film!

We will now be able to finish the film properly. Phew!

The film will be completely finished for the first public screening
sometime mid-summer.

Thank you everyone for your patience and I will let you know when the
release date is decided upon and teaser trailer will be released (work is about to begin on the marketing materials).

You can also access two clips from the Film Independent event from last month from www.richard-kelly.net – check out the new uploaded photos of second unit director Dee Robertson… when you watch the first clip… you will understand.

They. Are. Watching. You.
