2013 Sundance Film Festival Predictions: David Gordon Green’s Prince Avalanche

With the only piece of news coming from a June trade mention, we fathom that before David Gordon Green climbed onto his currently filming Joe and that he closed the books on Prince Avalanche – but not unlike his mentor Terrence Malick, he could have easily decided to put this indie comedy aside and get right to work on his latest project. Featuring Sundance vets Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, what we do know is that DGG collaborated once again with Producer Lisa Muskat, Composer David Wingo, Production Designer Richard A. Wright and true partner in crime Cinematographer Tim Orr. We guess he might want to premiere a smaller project at the same lieu he showed off All the Real Girls (Sundance ’03), Snow Angels (Sundance ’07) and numerous projects wearing the producer’s hat (more recently Craig Zobel’s Compliance).

Gist: Coming across as a buddy comedy, this is about two men not of the same age, but perhaps a generation apart who develop a kinship for one another after divulging their romantic/personal lives while working for the state.

Production Co./Producers: Muskat Filmed Properties’ Lisa Muskat, Derrick Tseng and filmmaker Craig Zobel.

Prediction: Premieres Program.
