Relativity Media options 'Down' screenplay

Relativity Media has optioned the original screenplay "Down" from freshman scribe Greg Russo.

Described by one person who read it as " 'Buried' meets '1408,' " the supernatural thriller centers on a guy trapped in an elevator.

Russo, a Vassar graduate who is new to the business, is repped by Manage-Ment.

Relativity has "MacGruber," which received its world premiere last week at SXSW, releasing through Rogue Pictures in May. The company is filming the thriller "Sanctum" and the Steven Soderbergh-directed actioner "Knockout."
