There simply aren't enough comedy/musical/suspense/thrillers out there these days. Never fear, though. Donnie Darko writer/director Richard Kelly has come along to save the day, as Southland tales will combine elements from all of those tales for a combination that looks to be as trippy as the malevolent and demonic bunny-rabbit Frank.

The story will take place in a Los Angeles of the very near future. Events will occur over the course of a three-day heat wave in 2008's July 4th holiday weekend. The film will feature singing, dancing and dream sequences, with Moby in talks to work on some of the original music.

A huge array of performers are currently in talks to star in the film, including Seann William Scott, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jason Lee, Janeane Garofalo, Tim Blake Nelson, Ali Larter, Kevin Smith and Amy Poehler.

After the cult success of Donnie Darko, Southland Tales looks to gain an even greater audience for Kelly's quirky style. (Kim Hollis/BOP)
