Ryan Reynolds is ‘Buried’ in new flick

Ryan Reynolds is repotedly stretching his acting muscles in the new indie pic “Buried.”

According to Variety, “The Proposal” star will play a civilian contractor who is kidnapped and awakens buried in a coffin in the middle of the desert. At his disposal he finds only a cell phone, a candle and a knife. The picture will be directed by Rodrigo Cortes, a Spanish filmmaker best known for “The Contestant.”

Reynolds was seen this spring in “Adventureland,” “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and in last weekend’s romantic comedy hit “The Proposal.”

“Buried” will begin production this month in Barcelona, Spain.
