Richard Kelly (Writer/Director)

Recognized as one of the most talented filmmakers of the new generation, Richard Kelly broke onto the film scene with the critically acclaimed, cult classic Donnie Darko. Kelly’s fascination with time travel and his intelligent questioning about how the world will end were at the heart of Southland Tales, his ambitious follow-up to Donnie Darko and showcased a varied, ensemble cast, including Dwayne Johnson, Justin Timberlake, Kevin Smith, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Seann William Scott, and Miranda Richardson. Most recently, Kelly directed The Box starring Cameron Diaz and James Marsden. The film is a suspense-driven morality tale inspired by a Twilight Zone episode written by Richard Matheson.
