Buried screenplay by Chris Sparling - posted by Don

I got an awesome email from Chris Sparling, screenwriter of Buried.

With the film I wrote, BURIED, now out in theaters, I felt the time was right to finally release the production draft of the script (the previous draft that appeared online — after being leaked by someone — was an early draft).

This time around, I figured I’d preempt the leak by releasing the script myself :)

Congrats on running such a great, informative site for writers.

Buried – July 25, 2009 production draft script by Chris Sparling – hosted by: SimplyScripts – in pdf format

Paul is a U.S. contractor working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it’s a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.

Always knew it’d get made.

Good work, fella.

Keep at it. I’ll catch it at the weekend on a screen near me.

Could you share Chris’ email? Id like to share with him an idea for a treatment on 12 strangers as well as a catalyst for an opening dialogue for the third installment of Night Chronicles….
