Show Me Your Box

Richard Kelly took to his MySpace blog to give some info on where his Marsden-Diaz flick The Box stands right now. Here are the choice bits:

"- WB is releasing the film on October 30, 2009. The release date has been shuffling around a bit, but this is common with studios, and everyone feels like this is the best date for the film.

- The film was digitally photographed using the Panavision Genesis camera. In my audio commentary on Tony Scott's Domino, I mentioned that I would never shoot a 1970s period piece using a digital camera. My position on this changed when I saw David Fincher's extraordinary Zodiac. It can be done.

- Win Butler, Regine Chassagne (of Arcade Fire) and Owen Pallett (Final Fantasy, frequent collaborator with Arcade Fire) recorded more than 80 minutes of score for the film.

This is my most personal film to date, and I'm very proud of how it turned out."

Win Butler already told the world about having done the score back in January, but it's nice to have further confirmation via the lips of pretty-boy wunderkind director Kelly as well.
