Paramount Vantage Gets Buried


Paramount Vantage has bought its first project of the Guy Stodel era, signing on for the crime drama “Buried,” with Todd Field (In the Bedroom, Little Children) attached to direct.

Brad Ingelsby will write the screenplay, which centers on a couple who, in a bid for cash, bury a wealthy man alive only to be caught and then forced to cope with the fallout on their relationship.

Alexandra Milchan is on board to produce the picture, which also contains elements of dark comedy.

The story is based on an article written by Hillel Levin and James Keene.
