DONNIE DARKO 3 is happening

Dear God, this is the worst news I've heard all week. Bloody Disgusting just got an exclusive report that 20th Century Fox is working on a third installment in the should-have-only-been-one DONNIE DARKO franchise. There is also a rumor that Richard Kelly might have some type of involvement. This worries me.

The straight-to-DVD sequel, S. DARKO - which took place some-odd years later and focused on Donnie's also doomed sister, Samantha - was clearly an awful re-envisioning of the first. Daveigh Chase reprised her role as Samantha, and I'm assuming she'll be back for the third. I'm going to call it DONNIE DARKO THREE: THINGS ARE GETTING REALLY DARK Y'ALL.

I love you, 20th Century - you've created many classic and enjoyable films - but c'mon!

    i loved Donnie Darko, i thought it was great. very intersting movie.
    But S. Darko just did not have whatever that magic was that Donnie had. i enjoyed the cast. but the storyline made way less sense than i expected and iit was really just not very good. what on earth are they doing for a third one???

      I honestly wish I knew – but my friend @adamconway did come up with an actual cool plot: A prequel to Donnie Darko about Frank's character. That's the only thing that would keep me interested.

    S. Darko is quite possibly one of the worst films I have ever seen. I can not believe these people are managing a third.
