It would be advisable to have some sort of mechanism to keep the film flat-ish against the rear of the box - for one, it will keep the film flat during the exposure; also, it will ensure that whatever stray light enters via the hole you drilled for the film frame readout does not bounce about the insides of the camera. (Shouldn't be much of an issue - you'll paint the inside black anyway, I guess.)
i did this and it works just fine !
