Ryan Reynolds will bury four fans at Fantastic Fest


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Do you want to be buried alive?

That’s the idea behind a relatively crazy fan promotion for Ryan Reynolds’ disturbing thriller, “Buried,” directed by Rodrigo Cortés.

Both Reynolds and Cortes will be in Austin, Texas for Fantastic Fest, while will host a Gala Screening of Buried at The Paramount Theatre on Thursday, Sept. 23. As part of their opening night programming for the festival, four “lucky” fans will view the film while being buried, themselves. It’s part of the traditional “Rolling Roadshow” staged by Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League.

“‘Buried’ is the most unique and compelling thriller I have seen in years. The festival is honored to screen what we feel is going to be the ‘buzz’ film of the season,” League said.

Lionsgate plans to release “Buried” in select theaters on Sept. 24. It will go wider on Oct. 8. It’s also playing the Toronto International Film Fest in early September. The film stars Reynolds as a truck driver and family man who wakes up six feet underground with no idea of who put him there or why.

As for Fantastic Fest, it runs from Sept. 23-30 in Austin. Organizers say they will make more announcements in the weeks to come, including information on gala events, parties and AMD Next Wave filmmakers in attendance.
