THE BOX

RICHARD KELLY (Director/Producer/Writer) and SEAN McKITTRICK (Producer) launched Darko Entertainment in late 2007 with financier Ted Hamm. Kelly and McKittrick solidified their relationship with Hamm on Kelly's second feature, the sci-fi thriller "Southland Tales,” on which Hamm was an executive producer. Based in Los Angeles, Darko finances modestly budgeted director-driven films. Their goal is to support filmmakers with a unique voice and bring Darko's brand to help independent films reach a wider audience.

Kelly and McKittrick first paired on Kelly's short film "Visceral Matter,” in 1997. That partnership generated Kelly's feature writing and directorial debut "Donnie Darko,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and went on to achieve international cult status. It also earned three Independent Spirit Award nominations, including two for Kelly for Best First Feature and Best First Screenplay, and one for Best Male Lead (Jake Gyllenhaal).

Kelly and McKittrick most recently served as producers on the comedy drama "World's Greatest Dad,” written and directed by Bobcat Goldthwait, which debuted at the San Francisco International Film Festival in April 2009, and the comedy "I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell,” directed by Bob Gosse from the Tucker Max best-seller, starring Matt Czuchry, Jesse Bradford and Geoff Stults. Among Darko's upcoming projects is the comedy "Rogue's Gallery,” featuring an ensemble cast which includes Zach Galifianakis, Rob Corddry, Joe Anderson, Ving Rhames, Odette Yustman, Ellen Barkin, Bob Odenkirk and Jeffrey Tambor. Darko is producing with Infinity Media. The company has also attached screenwriter Adam Prince to adapt the popular novel Fade, a gripping and dark tale by late young-adult fiction writer Robert Cormier. Darko will finance and produce the project.

A graduate of the University of Southern California film program, Kelly's other credits include the screenplay for "Domino,” directed by Tony Scott and starring Keira Knightley.
