The ageless Paul Rudd’s next big screen appearance will be in the world of indie, starring in Prince Avalanche with Emile Hirsch.
This week, director David Gordon Green (The Sitter, Pineapple Express) and Magnolia Pictures unveiled the film’s very first trailer, months after delighting audiences at the Sundance Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival.
Prince Avalanche is Green’s remake of the 2011 Icelandic comedy Either Way, directed by Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson. Rudd and Hirsch play Alvin and Lance, respectively — two dudes who work as road workers in Texas during the summer of 1988.
Prince Avalanche opens Aug. 9.
