The first acquisition to come out of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival is Lionsgate’s purchase of “Buried.”
“Buried” is the Ryan Reynolds-man-buried-alive scary movie that debuted this past weekend at the Sundance Film Festival. Lionsgate paid just under $4 million for it, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lionsgate has also made a mid to high-eight-figure Prints and Advertising commitment, with plans to release “Buried” sometime later this year.
Apparently the film is largely comprised of 90 minutes of Ryan Reynolds trying to break out of a coffin. If you’d like to see a preview, watch the trailer below. Or just go rewatch the “CSI” episodes “Grave Danger” parts I and II.
