There are some actors that I just inexplicably root for. I have no idea what this means or why I do this, but the best way I can explain it is that it’s almost as if the actor is a sports team and I want that actor to win. But at least with sports, there’s regional pride to fuel a sometimes unhealthy rooting interest in what are essentially strangers. There’s really no explanation as to why I feel this with an actor like Nicolas Cage. But, yet, I do.
David Gordon Green
The 'Joe' trailer is all about men trying to ground themselves again. We're not just talking about the character of Joe Ransom, a former convict trying to fit back in with society, but also star Nicolas Cage and director David Gordon Green, both of whom have run into their fair share of rough patches in the past few years. If the trailer is any indication, 'Joe' will be a return to form for both of them.
James Franco is asked often if they'll ever make a 'Pineapple Express 2' and for the first time we have an answer that sounds like a sequel to the 2008 hit is a lot closer than we think. The actor gives us our best update yet on 'Pineapple Express 2' and also lets us know that we'll never see a sequel to 'Your Highness,' a movie he says "sucks."
David Gordon Green's latest quirk-fest, 'Prince Avalanche,' stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch and made its debut a couple of months ago at the Sundance Film Festival, to very positive reviews (read our own right here). We've got a little while to go before it opens for all to see, but in the meantime the first trailer and poster have been made available.
There are few feature filmmakers harder to pin down than David Gordon Green. He was among the first to be branded "Malick-esque" with his dreamy character drama 'George Washington' in 2000. He later dovetailed into "bro comedies" from the well-received ('Pineapple Express') to the universally reviled ('The Sitter'). There has been other comedy work that I've admired, like his episodes of 'Eastbound & Down' and the under-appreciated 'Your Highness' but it is only with his latest, 'Prince Avalanche,' that he's been able to marry his early, poetic voice with his dark humor.
You had to know this day was coming eventually: the 'Little House on the Prairie' movie is coming. And while that seems like a forgone conclusion, we don't think anyone expected it would come to us from the director of 'Pineapple Express' and 'Your Highness'...
Indie filmmaker David Gordon Green has been churning out studio comedies for the last several years (with varied success), but his next project promises something we haven't seen from the director before - a horror remake - and it looks like he's finally found some financial backing and filming is set to begin later this year.
