Magnolia Picks Up David Gordon Green’s Prince Avalanche


Debuting at Sundance this past weekend to a rather boisterous amount of praise, David Gordon Green’s latest film, Prince Avalanche, seems like a return to form for the director, and it’s apparently already found a home.

Magnolia has bought the rights to the film, which stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch. The film, a remake of an Icelandic film, follows two men as they help repair an area following a wildfire.

Finding a great deal of support in Park City following its debut, the film is most noteable for having been shot with a great deal of secrecy (it wasn’t even really revealed until it was already in the can) and it features a score that people have been talking about since it debuted. Composed by David Wingo and Explosions In The Sky, the score has become a talking point surrounding the film, arguably even more so than the performances. However, it is Green’s return to form following a series of stinkers (yes, I’m looking at you films like The Sitter and Your Highness) that makes this film seem so impossibly interesting.
