Richard Kelly's next is

07.25.2006

I'm not sure if this has already been posted elsewhere, but whatever the case, allow me to write it up here anyway, as DONNIE DARKO director Richard Kelly officially announced his next directing gig at the San Diego Comic Con on Friday, and it will be a film called THE BOX. At some point in the project's development, HOSTEL director Eli Roth was going to direct that movie, but since he's doing HOSTEL 2 now (and most likely, Stephen King's CELL after that), he told Kelly to take the lead, and Kelly agreed (seems like the two co-wrote the screenplay together). The film takes place in 1976 and is based on the Richard Matheson short story. According to the IMDB, the film's plotline goes something like this: "A small wooden box arrives on the doorstep of a troubled married couple, who open it and become instantly wealthy. Little do they realize that opening the box also kills someone they do not know." Sounds cool. Kelly said that he was hoping for a "change of pace" with this film, and that he would likely be filming it in his own hometown of Richmond, Virginia.
