Ryan Reynolds gets Buried

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.
