Joe, David Gordon Green
"I have a sense of humor. I'm not always this lyrical, slow-moving, Southern crybaby." If the hallmark of the film auteur is cultivating and identifying a unique style, former indie wunderkind David Gordon Green has been systematically tearing down his signature status for a few years now.

David Gordon Green
We feel like if you don't like at least one David Gordon Green film there has to be something wrong. The one-time-wunderkind''s had a diverse and prolific career, ranging from gentle indie debut "George Washington" to lyrical love story "All The Real Girls" to thrillerish melodrama with "Snow Angels" and "Undertow" to dark comedy with "Eastbound & Down" to blockbuster comedy with "Pineapple Express" to bonkers stoner fantasy comedy with "Your Highness" to low-key dramedy with the currently-in-theaters "Prince Avalanche." But despite a few promises, we've barely seen the director's dark side (though that may be about to change, with the Venice-bound "Joe").

Filmmaker David Gordon Green has had a deeply eclectic career of omnivorous tastes thus far. To perhaps best demonstrate the polar extremes, the 37-year-old director (who has already made nine features) has had films produced by Terrence Malick ("Undertow") and Judd Apatow ("Pineapple Express"). His body of work thus far has covered intimate indie dramas featuring children ("George Washington"), broad comedies ("The Sitter"), adult dramas ("Snow Angels"), and high concept absurdist swords and sorcerer pictures ("Your Highness"). His oeuvre has run the gamut of styles, tones and genres.

Filmmaker David Gordon Green's latest effort, "Prince Avalanche," is getting some of the best reviews of his career. A hit at Sundance, that just got picked up by Magnolia Pictures, the unusual, poetically observational pas de deux comedy is funny, but also unexpectedly moving and human (you can read our review here). Starring Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch as estranged Beckett-ian odd-couple road crew workers in Texas, the film charts their fractious personal dynamics, their existential uncertainties, and perhaps most impressively, the way they come to ultimately empathize and bond with one another.

Frequently namechecked by critics, fellow actors and directors as one of the greatest screen actors alive, French actress Isabelle Huppert is the subject of the first of a series of impressive tributes to be made at this year’s Marrakech International Film Festival. She is also being honoured here by an eclectic, 11-movie sampling of her back catalogue, including 1980 Gerard Depardieu-starrer “Loulou”; Michael Haneke’s “The Piano Teacher,” for which she won the second of her two Best Actress awards in Cannes; and her more recent work with Brillante Mendoza and Hong Sang-soo, “Captive” and “In Another Country.”

Hot on the heels of the announcement that spooky Isabelle Fuhrman will headline David Gordon Green's long-discussed but now-actually-happening "Suspiria" remake, comes word that several more actors have joined the cast. In a piece about French production company Wild Bunch's Cannes slate, ScreenDaily reports that international treasure Isabelle Huppert has joined the cast of "Suspiria" alongside Janet McTeer, Michael Nyqvist and Antje Traue. This cast is already scary good.

We're about to move towards yet another act of David Gordon Green's career. The filmmaker started off with "George Washington," "All The Real Girls" and "Undertow" as a possible heir to Terrence Malick's meditative indie throne, but took a severe left-turn about five years back into abrasive stoner comedy, a shift which had both its successes ("Pineapple Express," "Eastbound & Down") and failures ("Your Highness," "The Sitter"). But for now, it seems, the director is about to try something new, and move into the horror world for his long-gestating remake of Dario Argento's horror classic "Suspiria."

We have to admit, we thought that after the double-whammy of flops in "Your Highness" and "The Sitter," David Gordon Green might have trouble getting his ambitious redo of Dario Argento's "Suspiria" off the ground. At least at a studio, anyway. But the resilient filmmaker has landed finacing courtesy of Crime Scene Pictures (the relatively new shingle that is also behind the Coens' penned "Gambit" with Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz) and things are now clicking for a September shoot. Nice.

Exclusive: With his new gonzo babysitter movie "The Sitter" opening up this weekend, we got to sit down and talk with its director, the multitalented David Gordon Green, best known for raunchy studio comedy "Pineapple Express" and most beloved for bittersweet indie romance "All the Real Girls." During the conversation, we had to get the lowdown on a plethora of projects he's been linked to. So, read on for updates on "Suspiria," the recently announced time travel romance "Q," and, in typical David Gordon Green speak, a whole bunch of other shit (including how his comic book horror movie "Freaks of the Heartland" might be headed for animation).

Eclectic Director Talks Horror Remakes That Got It RightFew horror films are as critically revered and fanatically adored as Italian director Dario Argento’s operatic 1977 shocker “Suspiria.” Centered on the witchy goings-on at a prestigious ballet school, it is largely considered one of the scariest movies of all time and served as the chief inspiration for Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-nominated (and similarly nightmarish) “Black Swan.” The idea of remaking “Suspiria” is a daunting one, but that hasn’t deterred David Gordon Green -- the versatile director behind such disparate films as “All the Real Girls,” “Pineapple Express” and "Your Highness" -- from doggedly pursuing an updated version.
