Southland Tales Gets VFX Greenlight

In February we reported that Richard Kelly was waiting for more money to finish the Southland Tales visual effects. Well the money has come and the film will be finished in time for a fall release date (hopefully).

Kelly writes on his MySpace Blog:

So we have finally gotten the greenlight from Sony for the additional round of visual effects for Southland Tales. This is VERY GOOD NEWS for the film!

We will now be able to finish the film properly. Phew!

The film will be completely finished for the first public screening sometime mid-summer.

Thank you everyone for your patience and I will let you know when the release date is decided upon and teaser trailer will be released (work is about to begin on the marketing materials).

You can also access two clips from the Film Independent event from last month from – check out the new uploaded photos of second unit director Dee Robertson... when you watch the first clip... you will understand.

They. Are. Watching. You.
