Paul Rudd is going back to his indie roots.
Rudd along with critically acclaimed Emile Hirsch will star in a buddy comedy-drama, Prince Avalanche. Written and directed by David Gordon Green (Eastbound and Down, Pineapple Express), Prince Avalanche is a story about a stern character named Alvin and his dopey girlfriend’s brother who leave the city behind to spend the summer in solitude repainting traffic lines down the center of a country highway ravaged by wildfire. Adapted from Icelandic Film Either Way, the film follows the odd pairing and the unlikely friendship that develops through humor and seclusion in the woods.
The cinematography looks amazing on this and the trailer depicts Rudd sporting an awesome Brian Fantana-esque mustache. Another bonus: soundtrack by Explosions in the Sky.
From Magnolia Pictures (District B13, Deadfall), Prince Avalanache hits the big screen August 9th.
