Todd Field & Vantage Are Buried

The new look, trimmed down Paramount Vantage has its first project – the darkly comedic crime drama “Buried” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Todd Field (In the Bedroom, Little Children) is attached to direct the story of 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.

The story is based on an article written by Hillel Levin and James Keene. Brad Ingelsby will write the screenplay and Alexandra Milchan will produce.
