First Look: Ryan Reynolds in His One-Man Thriller Buried
Before Ryan Reynolds goes on to play Hal Jordan in the Green Lantern movie and Wade Wilson (again) in the Deadpool spin-off, he'll finish shooting an indie thriller called Buried that he decided to take on to challenge his acting skills. We talked about the project a few times earlier this year, mainly because it was discovered that this is actually a one-man show, taking place entirely inside the confines of coffin, where Reynolds awakens buried alive. Thanks to Twitch we have two photos from the indie production, one of Reynolds (above) talking with Spanish director Rodrigo Cortés, and one of the actual view inside the coffin.
I actually read the script for Buried a month or so back, even though I didn't want to, but I started and just couldn't stop. It's an intense thriller or drama or whatever you want to call it, and it literally does take place entirely inside of a coffin. All he has is a cell phone (as you see) and a lighter and not only does he try and figure out how to get out (starting with figuring out where he is), but he also tries to reach his wife, because he's afraid he might not live. It's an awesome script and I'm very curious to see how Cortés plans to make a movie set inside of a coffin actually entertaining to watch for 90 minutes. But it actually looks good so far!
