The Box: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Camelot Pictures' Gary Gilbert and Dan Halsted are financing and producing The Box, a psychological thriller that Richard Kelly and Eli Roth are co-writing. Roth will direct.
Kelly and Sean McKittrick also will produce via their newly formed shingle, Darko Entertainment.
"The Box" revolves around an unhappy married couple who receive a small wooden box on their doorstep. At the push of a button, the box brings its bearer instant wealth but also instantly kills someone the bearer doesn't know. Kelly and Roth will loosely adapt the screenplay from the Richard Matheson short story "Button, Button," which was the basis for a cult classic episode of CBS' 1980s revival of "The Twilight Zone."
Kelly optioned the short story last year.
