‘The Box’ News

18 02 2008

Thanks to the kind souls at /Film we get a first look at the new Richard Kelly film, The Box.

“A mysterious stranger shows up on the doorstep of a desperate married couple’s (Cameron Diaz and James Marsden) home with a mysterious box. If they press the button inside the box, they’ll instantly get the money to save their ailing son, but in exchange, someone, somewhere in the world will die. But the temptation to save their dying son becomes too much, and Norma (Diaz) pushes the dreaded button and a gun shot goes off somewhere nearby. Consumed with guilt, Norma must do everything in her power to solve a murder she has knowingly caused.”

The story, based on a short story by Richard Matheson called Button Button, sounds really interesting.Richard Kelly has a huge hit with Donnie Darko and a general miss, with Southland Tales (I didn’t think it was so bad), so this could go either way. I am not usually a fan of Cameron Diaz, especially recently, but she does have her moments. this film will be interesting to say the least.
