Richard Kelly Jokes About Making Balloon Boy Movie

Richard Kelly Jokes About Making Balloon Boy MovieSubmit Comment
Everyone in the media is currently focusing on the Heene family that caused police to chase after a balloon that supposedly had their little boy Falcon in it. The boy was actually hiding in the house and now the general assumption is that the whole thing was a hoax.

The family has appeared on "Wife Swap" reality show, the father was looking to one day market his balloon as a new way of travel. After they realized that their son might be in the floating balloon, the father called the media before the police. And during the interview with the family, Falcon mentioned that he did this "for the show."

Now, director Richard Kelly (Donnie Darko, The Box) has posted a few comments on the topic on Twitter. "Okay, I've been running around all day and I missed this entire balloonboy story. Turning on CNN now," he said.

A bit later, he posted more comments:

* "Maybe I will get to direct the balloonboy movie! This is such an inspiring true story!"

* "Okay - little Falcon needs to learn how to sit still when Wolf Blitzer is interviewing him."

* "I hope Mr. and Mrs. Heene send Falcon to bed without dinner and he goes off to the island WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE. And they eat him."

* "My dream cast to play Mr. and Mrs. Heene in my upcoming balloonboy film: Kurt Russell and Gong Li.
"

Obviously Kelly is just kidding about making a movie about this family. After a fan replied to him: "And my underwear could double as the balloon," Kelly threatened: "I could cast you as Grandma Heene. Don't mock my vision!"

Anyone find it odd, this was the same scenario from Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys? Just this kid was supposedly in a balloon and not in a well.
