Media Rights Capital has tapped Cameron Diaz to star in The Box, a horror film to be directed by Donnie Darko helmer Richard Kelly, according to Variety. Kelly wrote the script based on Richard Matheson short story Button, Button.

Diaz will play a young woman given a mysterious box by a stranger. She's told that certain things will happen depending on which buttons she presses.

Production begins in the fall, where the movie is aiming for a PG-13 rating. The film's budget will be $30+ million and Media Rights intends on funding the entire project, as it did with Babel and will with Sacha Baron Cohen's Bruno.
