Todd Field To Get Buried

**In The Bedroom **and Little Children director Todd Field will stick with the seamy underbelly of life with Buried, a crime drama from a Brad Ingelsby script

The story follows a couple who, in a bid for cash, bury a wealthy man alive only to be caught and then forced to cope with the breakdown of their relationship. The story apparently contains a healthy dose of black comedy, but then what isn't funny about being buried alive?

Inglesby recently signed on to write Sleeper for Sam Raimi, while Field is currently attatched to direct Cormac McCarthy's novel **Blood Meridian **- a book considered unfilmable and one which Ridley Scott has already abandoned. Still, best of luck, eh?
