Cameron Diaz Scores Role in Horror Film

The news:
Cameron Diaz will be trying her hand at a thriller, The Box.

Why I'm excited:
The movie is written and directed by Richard Kelly, who also brought us the creepy cult classic Donnie Darko.

What's it about?
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie is based on a Richard Matheson short story about an unhappy couple who receive a box with a mysterious button; at the push of the button, they become wealthy — but they also kill someone they don't know.

I'm a little confused:
I can't say I've ever thought of Cameron Diaz as a horror actress; she just seems so perky and giddy and happy all the time.

Odd bit of trivia:
"Button Button," the story The Box will be based on, also was adapted into an episode of "The Twilight Zone" in the '80s.
