Here’s your first look at Hollywood pretty boy Ryan Reynolds dirtying it up for the Iraq-set thriller “Buried”. The film is being directed by Spaniard Rodrigo Cortes, and looks to be a very Ryan Reynolds-centric movie, with Reynolds’ character trapped in the coffin for pretty much the entire time. If you like Ryan Reynolds, that doesn’t sound so bad. But if you’re claustrophobic, that might mean an automatic pass on the flick. Up to you, really.
Paul is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find himself buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.
Aside from Reynolds, no one else seems to be in the cast list. Presumably that’ll change. Who really wants to see a movie with a guy trapped in the box for the entire movie?
