Oh boy! I hate the fact that they are actually going through with this thing. But if you want to know or are interested in how it is progressing two people have been added to the cast. Elizabeth Berkley (Saved by the Bell and Showgirls) and Briana Evigan (Step Up 2 The Streets). Hollywood reporter says:
Ed Westwick ("Gossip Girl") and Justin Chatwin ("The Chumscrubber") also are in the movie, which stars Daveigh Chase, reprising her role from the original cult classic.
The story, set seven years after the first film, follows Donnie Darko's sister, Samantha, who, in dealing with her broken family, flees town with her best friend (Evigan) when they are plagued by bizarre visions.
Production has begun in Utah.
Berkley is playing a speed freak-turned-Jesus freak whose sentiments about ridding the world of its exponential sin are rivaled only by her infatuation with her dreamy pastor.
So yeah. Thats all I have to say about that.
