Barry Sonnenfeld to Lift "The Box"



"Men in Black" helmer Barry Sonnenfeld is reportedly in talks to take helming duties in "The Box (2008)", the 20th Century Fox's contemporary take on the myth of Pandora's box.

Keen to take a departure from his usual comedic fare, Barry Sonnenfeld is in talks to helm a supernatural action-adventurer simply entitled "The Box (2009)" at the 20th Century Fox's pit, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.

A contemporary take on the myth of Pandora's box, the picture follows a college grad with an uncertain future as he is tricked into opening the mythical box and so, unwittingly unleashes the evils trapped within. Doing so, he then must team with Pandora to save the world from destruction.

Scribe Evan Spiliotopoulos has already been picked up to pen the screenplay with Richard Lewis producing via his Southpaw Entertainment. Project is currently being fast-tracked by Fox to be a summer event film.
