This fitting conversation took place during a phone call with Richard Kelly, as he was promoting Arrow Video’s new Blu-ray for Southland Tales, which now has the fabled Cannes Cut of the film released into the wild for the first time. On behalf of CinemaBlend, I was given the opportunity to discuss what’s become a cult classic over the years, but in my research, I came across the fact that if it wasn’t for this audacious sci-fi comedy, we could have seen Kelly tackling what would have been his version of 2006’s X-Men: The Last Stand. Not sure if this was one of those older news items that somehow grew through a years-long game of telephone, I asked him about that prospect, and Richard Kelly not only confirmed that this was a true story, but he explained why he ultimately had to turn it down:
