Follow our logic here: Richard E. Kelly, the man behind cult classic Donnie Darko, announces he has been "hired by Fox to write a big action film for [FAMOUS DIRECTOR], it is a remake of a film released in 1971..." Of course, 1971 was the release of the cult car classic "Vanishing Point" we all love. And to make things more interesting, Fox released a version of "Vanishing Point" in 1997 and should therefore have some sort of access to the rights. On top of that, the star of "Vanishing Point" is an awesome E-body Dodge Challenger. Wouldn't it be nice timing if that came out near the production launch of the new Dodge Challenger?
