“Donnie Darko” and “Southland Tales” helmer Richard Kelly has confirmed that production has wrapped on his third feature “The Box”.
On his Myspace Blog, the actor says “I’ve been in Boston/Virginia directing my third movie and now I am back in LA and we have officially wrapped production on The Box.”
He adds that “It was an amazing experience working with Cameron Diaz, James Marsden, Frank Langella and the entire supporting cast and crew. My editors have been working non-stop, and we are beginning to work on the visual effects, signing a composer, etc. As soon as Warner Bros. gives us a release date I will let you know.”
Norma and Arthur Lewis (Diaz and Marsden) are a suburban couple with a young child, receive a simple wooden box as a gift, which bears fatal and irrevocable consequences.
A mysterious stranger (Langella), delivers the message that the box promises to bestow upon its owner $1 million with the press of a button. But, pressing this button will simultaneously cause the death of another human being somewhere in the world…someone they don’t know.
With just 24 hours to have the box in their possession, Norma and Arthur find themselves in the crosshairs of a startling moral dilemma and must face the true nature of their humanity.
