Director David Gordon Green has just wrapped production on a secret remake of the Icelandic comedy Either Way, a top-secret indie titled Prince Avalanche. Pineapple Express helmer Green has very quietly shot, along with stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, the low-budget road trip comedy in Austin, TX last month.
Film, based on Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurosson’s Icelandic comedy Either Way, follows two men whose lives crisscross while working on a road striping crew together, but ‘noon the barren wilderness becomes a place of adventure, disaster and discovery as both men find themselves at crossroads in their lives.’
The weird part is they didn’t tell anyone about the film, which was also written by Gordon Green and marks his return to the indie fare, such as 2003s All the Real Girls.
As for Rudd, he will next appear in teen drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower and Judd Apatow’s This Is 40. He’ll soon reteam with Adam McKay and David Wain for Anchorman 2 and They Came Together.
Hirsch has upcoming roles in William Friedkin’s Killer Joe and Oliver Stone’s Savages and is also attached to star in Pascal Chaumeil’s adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel ‘A Long Way Down.’
Check out the trailer for the original Either Way below.
