In this day and age, it’s almost impossible for a project to work under any sort of secrecy. Even announcements of upcoming films are covered (here as well as other outlets) with as much fervor as anything else, so you can imagine my surprise when Variety had this report here on filmmaker David Gordon Green having already finished a previously unknown project. It’s an indie comedy with Emile Hirsch and Paul Rudd starring. Apparently it’s also a remake of the Icelandic film ‘Either Way’. After the jump you can see what that film is about, but it seems that Green’s flick will be called ‘Prince Avalanche’. With this group involved, count me in!
The only real summary I can find comes from the Icelandic Film Centre (via The Film Stage here), and it goes like this:
In the remote north of Iceland in the 1980s, Finnbogi and Alfred spend the summer painting lines on the winding roads that stretch out to the horizon. Soon the barren wilderness becomes a place of adventure, disaster and discovery as both men find themselves at crossroads in their lives.
