Thompson on Hollywood

As predicted in some quarters, the genre films are piqueing interest from buyers. Lionsgate has acquired domestic distribution rights for Rodrigo Cortes' Buried, which screened last night in the Park City at Midnight selection. Twitter lit up with fan sites raving about the picture. Ryan Reynolds plays a contractor in Iraq who is held captive in a casket underground while he is held for ransom. Here's Variety.

Social networking doc Catfish is also expected to close a deal today. Other films in play are Howl (which played best for art-house distribs), Winter's Bone, Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Happythankyoumoreplease.
