Martha Stephens ("Pilgrim Song") and Aaron Katz ("Cold Weather"), both graduates from the North Carolina School of Arts, have each cultivated promising film careers for themselves over the past few years (ie. the aforementioned films). Now, they will be co-directing a film they wrote together, a buddy comedy called “Land Ho!” with David Gordon Green (another NCSA alum) hopping on board as an executive producer. The film will star Paul Eenhoorn and Earl Lynn Nelson as ex-brothers-in-law who go on a road trip in Iceland in order to reclaim their youth.

And most of them never make it, only talking about making it big until it's just embarrassing. But every now and then, someone manages a foot in the door, the right phone calls and the happenstance connections to get that something moving. And in this case, it's Orlando Bloom's former assistant.
