According to the Los Angeles Times, the play, for which Fox is currently in negotiations, is In a Forest Dark and Deep, by Tony Award-nominated playwright Neil LaBute. The play, which had a reading at the Cape Cod Theatre Project this summer under the title second year senior, revolves around a brother and sister coming to terms with their lives during a stormy evening. The part of the sister has not been cast.
No official announcement about the production has been made.
A graduate of the Atlantic Theater Company's acting conservatory, Fox is best known for playing the island-stranded Jack on "Lost" and eldest orphaned son Charlie Salinger in "Party of Five."
LaBute's Break of Noon, starring David Duchovny, will open at the Lucille Lortel Theatre this fall.
