Surprise! David Gordon Green just shot a new movie on the sly, and it's one that has some unlikely origins.

Details are still being firmed up, but here's what is known thus far. The folks over at Twitch reveal that Green rounded up Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch for the film that shot last month in Austin, and is a remake of Icelandic filmmaker Hafsteinn Gunnar Sigurðsson's "Either Way" ("Á annan veg"). In that film, the story is set in the '80s and follows two highway maintenance men who work together in the barren wilderness and chronicles their evolving friendship. And we presume with the slender cast and Texas location, Green hasn't strayed too much from the source.

Variety adds that Green's film is titled "Prince Avalanche" and that's about all for details. For fans bemoaning the director's turn to the mainstream in recent years, this seems to be balanced with bigger stars on board for a smaller scale movie. No word on where or when we might see it -- filming has just wrapped -- but could this effort make it's way to the festival season this fall? We shall see. For now, watch the trailer for the original film below.
