It’s happened yet another time. The Box has been pushed back. The sci-fi/thriller will now open in cinemas on November 6th, so only a week later than earlier announced. It will now face off against Disney’s A Christmas Carol.
In a new article by People magazine, the ladies of 2009 Comic-Con reveals their favorite moments. Naturally, Cameron – who was there promoting The Box – is one of them. Check out her favorite part of the festival below!
Cameron Diaz meanwhile got to mix and mingle with the crowd while promoting her horror film The Box. “My favorite part so far has been the signing of all the posters for the fans that came through,” Diaz told People. “Everyone is so kind and so generous. It’s nice to be around people who are really positive and excited about the filmmaking process.”
As previously mentioned, Cameron is set to star in The Green Hornet with Seth Rogen. However, the role might not be the female lead/love interest, as some ‘sources’ have reported. Here’s what Cami herself said about the role:
“I’m playing one of the gals in it,” she revealed. “It’s just a small part.”
Though her role may be small, the actress said she is thrilled to join the potential superhero franchise.
“I’m very excited about it – very excited,” she added.
So Cameron won’t be the lead in this movie, perhaps she took a small(er) role to have time with the yet untitled James Mangold project, which is slated to start filming in early fall as well? Stay tuned for more on both of these projects.
Comic-Con brought a lot of news to the table! Not only did Cameron Diaz, James Marsden and Richard Kelly (director) reveal clips from The Box, but Cameron also confirmed that she is, indeed, on board to star in The Green Hornet! Check out the interview from MTV News where she talks about her role as Lenore Case and the movie.
Also, stay tuned for coverage from The Box panel at 2009 Comic-Con!
As announced earlier, Richard Kelly will talk about his upcoming The Box at the 2009 Comic-Con today! Cameron Diaz and James Marsden have been rumored to appear on the panel as well. If she is in attendance, you can be sure to find coverage from the event at Cameron-Diaz.org! Stay tuned.
During the 2009 Comic-Con, actor Seth Rogen and director Michael Gondry revealed more details regarding The Green Hornet. Cameron Diaz is rumored to star as Rogen’s love interest in the action/comedy film. Check out what they said about her character below!
“Lenore Case, would be her role,” Rogen said of Diaz, confirming that out of the several female leads in the “Green Hornet” radio, TV and movie incarnations over the last 70 years, the “Charlie’s Angels” star will be playing the character nicknamed “Casey.” “Assuming all the deals close, which it looks like they will.”
“In the original show there was Britt Reid, Kato and Lenore Case their secretary,” explained Evan Goldberg, Rogen’s longtime writing/producing partner. “She was one of the only people who knew they were The Green Hornet and Kato. Cameron Diaz is a new development, we’re real excited, she plays a secretary for Britt Reid.”
As director Michael Gondry was quick to point out, however, their take on Casey will be quite different – including a Lois Lane-like obliviousness to GH’s identity, and an affinity for crime TV.
Another poster from the upcoming thriller The Box has been released onto the web, via director Richard Kelly’s Twitter-account. The movie, starring Cameron Diaz, James Marsden and Frank Langella, will hit US cinemas on October 30, later this year. Check it out in full size by clicking on the preview to the right. The movie synopsis can be read below.
The year is 1976. Norma Lewis (Cameron Diaz) is a teacher at a private high school and her husband, Arthur (James Marsden) is an engineer working at NASA. They are, by all accounts, an average couple living a normal life in the suburbs with their young son… until a mysterious man with a horribly disfigured face appears on their doorstep and presents Norma with a life-altering proposition: the box. With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face an impossible moral dilemma. What they don’t realize is that no matter what they decide, terrifying consequences will have already been set in motion. They soon discover that the ramifications of this decision are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.
