Southland Tales gets a release date...

And it's out this year!

We've been looking forward to Southland Tales since the Cannes before last - we loved it, even if most of the people there didn't - and we can't wait to see the new cut.

And it looks as though our patience has been rewarded - Samuel Goldwyn Films have announced that Richard Kelly's Donnie Darko follow-up will hit cinemas on 9 November.

That brings it awfully close to the supposed-to-be-the-future timeline of the film - 4 July 2008, but it could have worse. Remember how much you chuckled when you rewatched Escape From New York in 1997?

Anyway, keep your eye on Total Film for more Southland updates...
