Those of you who thought that perhaps – just perhaps – that the production of S. Darko (also known as Donnie Darko 2) was just some bad rumor will be troubled to hear that casting is indeed going forward. Whereas the first movie starred practically unknown Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, the casting has gone the Showgirls route with the announcement that Elizabeth Berkley will be joining the cast.
Berkley will play a crazy Jesus freak who wants to rid the world of sin – but who also lusts after her dreamy pastor.
In addition, Briana Evigan (Step Up 2: The Streets) will also have a role in the movie as the best friend of star Daveigh Chase (reprising her role as the youngest daughter in the original Donnie Darko). Other cast members already announced include Ed Westwick and Justin Chatwin.
S. Darko, as a movie, really worries me.
