Once upon a time, there were plans for three seasons of the show Eastbound & Down, and three seasons only. That plan came to fruition and the show finished with a third season finale earlier this April. But Eastbound isn’t done, as HBO has ordered eight more episodes of the show. So there will be a few more hours of Kenny Powers and his fashion-forward hair for your enjoyment. (This is the part where fans of canceled series like Bored to Death and Deadwood get irritated, however.) Read More »

Sneaky, sneaky. While we’ve been wondering when David Gordon Green might return to the indie fare that earned him so much acclaim in his early days, it turns out Green himself has already done so in secret. Green, along with stars Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch, has just wrapped the low-budget road trip comedy Prince Avalanche, an Austin, TX-set remake of the Icelandic film Either Way (A annan veg). More details after the jump.

It’s been several years since David Gordon Green began working on his remake of Dario Argento‘s horror classic Suspiria, but the pieces appear to be falling into place for real this time. About a month after producers announced that financing was locked in and casting was underway, Green has found his star:15-year-old Isabelle Furhman, best known for her turn in Jaume Collet-Serra’s rather insane Orphan.

Fuhrman leads a strong cast that also includes Isabelle Huppert, Janet McTeer, Michael Nyqvist, and Antje Traue, in unnamed roles. More details after the jump.

For four years now, David Gordon Green has been working on a remake of Dario Argento‘s 1977 horror classic Suspiria. For a while the movie looked to be coming together for a 2010 start, but it wasn’t until summer 2010 that Argento finally turned over the rights, so Green’s project got off schedule. Green never gave up, though, and as of last spring had written a new draft of the script and secured the rights to the original’s score from Goblin. And now all that work is about to pay off, as the pieces are falling into place to start production this fall. More after the jump.

The Sitter is David Gordon Green‘s film that is being called an R-rated Adventures in Babysitting, and this is the second red-band trailer we’ve seen for the movie. This one has a little less sex and a lot more general mayhem as Jonah Hill plays a young jerkwad who takes a babysitting job and then drags the kids around Manhattan with him as he attempts to get laid. Check out the trailer below, if you can do so without fear that it will make you too familiar with many of the movie’s jokes. (There’s always the all-ages trailer if you want something less revealing.) Read More »

Fans of David Gordon Green‘s early work can breathe a sigh of relief. After making his name with well-received dramas like George Washington and All the Real Girls, the director took a sharp left turn into R-rated comedy in 2008 with the stoner flick Pineapple Express. He’s stayed in funny territory ever since, helming Your Highness, the upcoming The Sitter, and episodes of HBO’s Eastbound and Down.

But Green will finally be making a return to more serious fare with his next feature. Columbia is reportedly in final talks to acquire the film rights to Evan Mandery‘s time-traveling love story Q, with Green on board to write and direct. More details after the jump.

If the new slimmed down, Serious Actor version of Jonah Hill confounds you, don’t fret — The Sitter sees Hill returning to the familiar role of pudgy funnyman as Noah Jaybird, a layabout who gets roped into babysitting a trio of bratty kids. Described as cross between Adventures in Babysitting and SuperbadDavid Gordon Green‘s comedy follows Noah and his charges as they embark on a wild night, crossing paths with a pair of psychotic dealers (Sam Rockwell and J.B. Smoove), a horny young lady (Ari Graynor), and various other unsavory characters. Needless to say, the evening does not go well, especially for poor Noah.

A new red-band TV spot shows Noah getting smashed up in all sorts of ways by various people, while an international poster demonstrates the film’s racier side. Check out both after the jump. (Warning: The former is NSFW for language; the latter is technically SFW, but is probably the kind of thing your boss wouldn’t be thrilled to see on your computer screen at work.)
