If you haven’t heard anything about the upcoming dramedy ‘Downhill‘ starring Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, well, now is the time to change that.
The film is an English language remake of the 2014 hit film Force Majeure, which won the Best Film award at the 50th Guldbagge Awards and was named one of the top films of the year by several publications.
The story follows a vacationing businessman who reacts selfishly/cowardly during what appears to be a deadly avalanche by abandoning his wife and children.
This US remake is being directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, the duo behind the lovely coming-of-age flick The Way, Way Back.
I’m super excited for this movie. It’s got a great story, great directors, great cast…let’s just hope they don’t screw it up. The film is expected to hit theaters Valentine’s Day 2020.
