Now this is not casting news that makes me happy. James Marsden, better known to most as the whinny Cyclops from X-Men is in final negotiations to star in Richard Kelly’s long-awaited The Box, opposite Cameron Diaz, so say The Hollywood Reporter.
If he does sign up, he’d play one half of a very unhappy couple who one day receives a box from a stranger who tells them that if they push the button on the box, their money problems will go away. All it takes is for someone to die.
As long as I could pick the person, that doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all…
The Weinstein Co. have been repping the foreign sales of The Box at AFM and will be closing the deal on most territories this week. Keep it here for more casting and updates on The Box as they come along. And who knows, maybe it will actually get made some day!
