Cabin Fever writer and director Eli Roth will next helm The Box, a psychological thriller loosely derived from an episode of CBS' 1980s revival of The Twilight Zone.

The Box revolves around an unhappy married couple who receive a small wooden box on their doorstep. At the push of a button, the box brings its bearer instant wealth but also instantly kills someone the bearer doesn't know.

Roth will write the script with Richard Kelly, who made a name for himself as the writer/director of cult hit Donnie Darko. They will loosely adapt the screenplay from the Richard Matheson short story "Button, Button," which was the basis for a classic episode of the "Twilight Zone" revival. Production on the project is expected to start this year.
