Richard Kelly wants you to know he can direct a movie that’s not completely insane and/or doesn’t totally fall apart midway through. That’s where the bar’s been set, but can the creepy bunny man leap over it?

Kelly (Donnie Darko, The Box) will take on a more straightforward narrative with his new film Corpus Christi, though the plot description makes me wonder if deviations into “Fluid Karma” territory are inevitable:

The Texas-set story concerns a mentally unstable Iraq war veteran named Paciencia “Patience” De La Rosa, who forges a strange friendship with his boss Ralph Salverson, the wealthy and politically ambitious owner of a supermarket chain.

Eli Roth (Hostel) is on board to produce, so maybe that’ll help anchor this more in the traditional thriller territory, and less in the “wait, why did he say that – that makes no sense” territory. Casting is currently underway and bunny suits are discouraged. Pig masks… bring ‘em just in case. (Variety)
