Marsden to Join "The Box"

HollywoodReporter.com has news that James Marsden (X-Men, Superman Returns) is in final negotiations to join the cast of Richard Kelly's "The Box". Marsden would play the husband of Cameron Diaz's character. A mysterious man (Frank Langella) gives the couple a box that will give money every time a button is pressed, but at the cost of a stranger's life. The film, an adaptation of Richard Matheson's short story "Button, Button," is being produced by Media Rights Capital and Kelly's company Darko Entertainment.

Cameron Diaz Opens "The Box"

Cameron Diaz has signed on to play the lead in Richard "Donnie Darko" Kelly's upcoming horror flick The Box, according to Variety.com. The movie, which is based on the Richard Matheson short story "Button, Button," deals with a young woman who receives a box that will cause "certain things" to happen, depending which of the box's buttons are pressed. Media Rights Capital is fronting the film's entire $30 million-plus budget and will begin pursuing distribution deals in the fall. "My hope is to make a film that is incredibly suspenseful and broadly commercial, while still retaining my artistic sensibility," Kelly said.
