David Gordon Green Wraps Secret Comedy Remake PRINCE AVALANCHE Starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch

     June 6, 2012


Well here’s something that rarely happens anymore:  director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) has just wrapped production on a secret remake of the Icelandic comedy Either WayTwitch reports that Green’s iteration, titled Prince Avalanche, stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, and he filmed the whole thing in Austin without word getting out about the project.  The Icelandic film centers on two men who spend the summer painting lines on the road, but “noon the barren wilderness becomes a place of adventure, disaster and discovery as both men find themselves at crossroads in their lives.”  Hit the jump for more, including a trailer for Either Way.

Green’s been dabbling in higher profile movies since Pineapple Express with the truly bizarre fantasy comedy Your Highness and last year’s Jonah Hill comedy vehicle The Sitter, but the director actually began his career with small character dramas.  With Prince Avalanche, it would appear that Green is going back to his roots a bit before moving on to the horror remake Suspiria.  The horror pic is expected to begin production this September, with Isabelle Fuhrman in the lead role.
