David Gordon Green, Paul Rudd, Emile Hirsch on “Prince Avalanche.”

Emile Hirsch and Paul Rudd in "Prince Avalanche," a Magnolia Pictures release.

Director and screenwriter David Gordon Green and actors Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch talk about their new movie, “Prince Avalanche.” It’s the story of mild-mannered Alvin (Paul Rudd) and immature chatterbox Lance (Emile Hirsch), who are hired to spend the summer of 1988 repainting a highway in a remote fire-damaged Central Texas forest. An unlikely friendship emerges from the mutual annoyance. It opens August 9 at IFC Center and at Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.
