David Gordon Green made a film with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch

David Gordon Green has just wrapped a secret indie film he wrote and directed starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, Variety reports.

The low-budget road comedy is called Prince Avalanche; it was filmed in Austin and is a remake of an Icelandic comedy called Either Way, directed by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurosson. In the original, two highway maintenance men spend a summer in the 1980s painting road lines in the wilderness. This sounds right up Green’s alley, with plenty of opportunity for the characters to carry the film rather than the action.

In recent years Green has directed more mainstream fare, such as Pineapple Express, The Sitterand Your Highness, but this could be a great opportunity for him to return to his roots.

Details on Green’s remake are pretty non-existent at this early stage, but the pairing of Rudd and Hirsch has us excited.

David Gordon Green will next direct a remake of the horror film Suspiria.
