Richard Kelly and Eli Roth Head to Corpus Christi


rkelly - Richard Kelly and Eli Roth Head to Corpus ChristiWe’re not exactly sure how Dread worthy the following bit of news is, but given the talent involved, it’s at the very least worth an initial mention.

According to Variety Richard Kelly (pictured right) will next write and helm the contemporary thriller Corpus Christi, a departure into a more traditional narrative for the Donnie Darko director.

Kelly and Sean McKittrick will produce through their Darko Entertainment banner along with Eli Roth.

The Texas-set story concerns a mentally unstable Iraq war veteran, who forges a strange friendship with his boss, a wealthy and politically ambitious owner of a supermarket chain. Reports confirm that the flick will be Kelly’s first film without heavy sci-fi or metaphysical elements.
