Rudd, Hirsch wrap secret indie

David Gordon Green wrote, directed 'Prince Avalanche'

Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch have quietly wrapped a top-secret indie titled “Prince Avalanche,” written and directed by David Gordon Green.

Pic, based on Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurosson’s Icelandic comedy “Either Way,” follows two men whose lives intersect while working on a road striping crew together.

Green and his longtime collaborators Lisa Muskat and Craig Zobel produced the film with James Belfer and Derrick Tseng. Exec producers include Leo Joseph, Todd Labarowski and Matt Reilly. Berndt Mader served as co-producer, while Brad and Melissa Coolidge were co-exec producers. Alex Uhlmann was associate producer. Pic shot last month in Bastrop, Texas.

Prince Avalanche” is a To Get to the Other Side production, presented by Rough House Pictures, Muskat Filmed Properties and Dogfish Pictures in association with Lankn Partners and Dreambridge Films.

For Green, who’s coming off two studio comedies, the project is a return to the indie fare, such as 2003’s “All the Real Girls,” that defined his early career. Green will next direct Crime Scene Pictures’ remake of Dario Argento’s horror classic “Suspiria,” which will star Isabelle Fuhrman and Isabelle Huppert.

Rudd will next be seen in Summit’s teen drama “The Perks of Being a Wallflower” and Judd Apatow’s “This Is 40,” which Universal opens Dec. 21. Thesp recently wrapped Phil Morrison’s indie “Lucky Dog,” and he’ll soon reunite with past collaborators Adam McKay and David Wain for “Anchorman 2” and “They Came Together,” respectively.

Hirsch will soon be seen in William Friedkin’s “Killer Joe” and Oliver Stone’s “Savages.” He’s also attached to star in Pascal Chaumeil’s adaptation of Nick Hornby’s novel “A Long Way Down.”

Muskat, who has produced nearly all of Green’s films dating back to “George Washington,” is a co-producer on “Suspiria.” She recently produced Craig Zobel’s psychological thriller “Compliance” with Green, Belfer and Zobel. Magnolia Pictures will release the controversial Sundance film in August.

Dreambridge Films recently wrapped “What Maisie Knew,” starring Alexander Skarsgard and Julianne Moore.

Green is repped by CAA and Gotham Group. Rudd is repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment Partners. Hirsch is repped by WME and the Collective.
