Buried: Todd Field to direct the crime drama
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Todd Field is attached to direct Buried, a crime drama for Paramount Vantage.

The screenplay, to be written by Brad Ingelsby (The Low Dweller, Sleeper), will also contain elements of dark comedy and will center 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.

"Buried" is the first project picked up by Vantage since New Line veteran Stodel took over for Amy Israel as exec vp production and acquisitions this summer.
