Frank Langella steps into The Box

Cameron Diaz will be getting some help – or maybe it’s hindrance - in Richard Kelly’s Southland Tales follow-up, The Box.

Frank Langella, last seen in Superman Returns, has signed on to play Arlington Stewart, a mysterious stranger who first gives the titular box to Diaz’ character. And we all know what happens then – terrible, terrible things…

Now that Kelly is free of the burden of editing Tales, he’ll start shooting in mid-November, which will allow Langella to finish up shooting Ron Howard’s movie version of Frost/Nixon.
