"Donnie Darko" Sequel to Change the Events in the Original

Posted: June 23rd, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Donnie Darko" Sequel to Change the Events in the OriginalSubmit Comment
The sequel to the 2001 cult classic "Donnie Darko" is currently filming and star Briana Evigan (Step Up 2: The Streets) spoke to MTV News about it, revealing that the new film will change the events that took place in the original movie.

"This is a sequel to 'Donnie Darko,' and it's so crazy," she explained of the movie, set seven years after the original. "It's basically about going back in time and changing something. My character is named Corey she's a selfish, badass kind of girl. She ends up switching a moment in time to take her life [to help] somebody else, her best friend. It goes into all different dimensions, but it's really about turning something around for somebody else, and being able to go back and have another chance."

In the original flick, it was Donnie who had all the fun. This time around, the characters of Corey and Donnie's little sister, Samantha (a returning Daveigh Chase), will be on a road trip to Los Angeles, and both will be harnessing the hallucinations and time-travel abilities that once plagued Samantha's older brother.

"I have the power too," Evigan explained. "I'm [Samantha Darko's] best friend. ... In ways, with me and her, it's like two girls on a road trip. It's a really cool, fun script. But it's darker, and I hope everybody understands it."

Calling the script "very twisted," the 21-year-old actress also said that "S. Darko" will interact with the events of the original film, a la the "Back to the Future" sequels. "We just come back [in time] and change what happened in the first one."

In addition to Kelly, the film is progressing without any participation from "Donnie Darko" stars Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore or Jena Malone. One character that does return, however, is Frank the giant rabbit guy. "Yes, and it's really cool-looking," she said of the imaginary character. "It's scary."
