American History X Helmer Returns

Hey guys, it's Donnie...Tony Kaye is the director behind the absolutely stunning American History X, the dark film which not only features not only a great performance by Edward Norton, but it's only one of two movies in which I don't want to punch Eddie Furlong in the ear. (The other being Detroit Rock City, highly underrated.) After History X, Kaye kind of disappeared, but as of this morning, he's back. M8 Entertainment announced that Kay will be helming a new flick called Reaper, described to be in the vein of Blade Runner and Se7en.
Reaper tells the story of Virgil, a private investigator who finds himself recruited by the darkly beautiful and mysterious Delia. As he begins to work for Delia, Virgil finds himself suddenly immersed in a surreal underworld, one where the boundaries of life and death - as well as right and wrong -are completely blurred. This unlikely journey also reveals the harrowing answers to the fate of Virgil's own daughter.
I love American History X and would love to see more from Tony Kaye. I always get sad when a young new director puts out a kick ass movie and then drops off the face of the planet. Aside from that, the movie just sounds cool as shit. We'll be keeping tabs on this one...
