Richard Kelly just updated his MySpace blog with some very good news last night; The Box is a wrap! The horror movie starring Frank Langella, Cameron Diaz (pictured) and James Marsden and has been shooting in Boston (d’oh!) and Virginia for the past few weeks and is now officially in the can!
”It was an amazing experience working with Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, Frank Langella and the entire supporting cast and crew.” Kelly said in his blog, ”My editors have been working non-stop, and we are beginning to work on the visual effects, signing a composer, etc.”
No word on when Warner Bros. will have The Box in theaters, but hopefully it won’t suffer the same direct-to-DVD fate Kelly’s Southland Tales is. The Box is a retelling of the classic “Twilight Zone” episode “Button, Button”, about a couple who find a device that has a button that will give them whatever they want, but each time it does it has to kill someone.
Should be interesting to see how this one shapes up; keep it here for more on The Box as we learn it!
