"X-Men" vet Marsden joins Diaz in horror movie

James Marsden
, who caught the public's attention playing Cyclops in the "X-Men" trilogy, is in final negotiations to star opposite Cameron Diaz in the horror film "The Box." 

They will play an unhappily married couple who receive a box from a stranger who tells them that if they push a button on the box, they'll receive a hefty amount of cash -- and someone they don't know will die.

Director Richard Kelly adapted the $30 million project from the Richard Matheson short story "Button, Button," first published in Playboy in 1970. Matheson adapted the story for an episode of CBS' mid-'80s revival of "The Twilight Zone."

Marsden, whose credits also include "Hairspray" and "Superman Returns," stars opposite Katherine Heigl in the upcoming romantic comedy "27 Dresses."

ShockTillYouDrop.com has posted the full official synopsis for the film, which you can read here.

In addition, The Hollywood Reporter says that Marsden will do a cameo in Sean Anders' teen sex comedy "Sex Drive."
