It’s tough to keep a secret in Hollywood, but it seems director David Gordon Green has managed it, as the helmer of Pineapple Express and Your Highness has managed to film a movie called Prince Avalanche, which he shot last month in Texas.
If the film had a no name cast, it might be understandable the film went under the radar, but this one stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. It’s a remake of the 2011 Icelandic road trip comedy Either Way, which is set in the 1980s and follows two highway maintenance men who work in some of the country’s remotest areas. Their friendship has developed over the years they’ve shared time on the road, with much of the movie being their discussions about anything and everything, from their sex lives to their fears.
Although the Variety report about the film isn’t clear whether the new version differs from the original in any major ways, the presumption is that Rudd and Hirsch play two similar men, who chat as the travel the wilds of Texas. There’s no news on when it might hit cinemas.
