Paul Eenhoorn Surfaces in Iceland!

Editor’s Note:  I’ll bet none of you who have been wondering what Paul Eenhoorn is up to, guessed that he might be shooting a new movie in Iceland!  He’s ripping it up onscreen as one of a pair of old duffers out to celebrate a friendship in a quite out of the way place.  Look for it at Sundance!

Land Ho!’ Poster Premiere: This Is the Sundance Movie You Definitely Want to Party With

By  Jan 13, 2014

Two ex-brothers-in-law (This Is Martin Bonner’s Paul Eenhoorn and Eastbound & Down’s Earl Lynn Nelson) set off on an Iceland vacation to reclaim their youth; dipping their toes in the Reykjavik nightclub scene, visiting trendy spas, dining at daring restaurants and communing at rugged campsites. What starts as a raucous adventure becomes a journey of self-discovery.

Land Ho! is the latest producing project from lyrical indie-film favorite David Gordon Green, directed by Martha Stephens (Pilgrim SongPassenger Pigeons) and Aaron Katz (Cold WeatherQuiet City). The endearing tale is part 1980s raucous road comedy, part sensitive and charming portrait of aging à la an edgier Strangers in Good Company for men. Interestingly enough, Nelson, who wasn’t formally trained as an actor, plays a brazen surgeon in the film. He’s also a practicing surgeon in his offscreen life as well. Nelson’s improvisational, naturalistic style caught the eye of Green when he appeared in Stephens’ Passenger Pigeons.

We have the poster premiere for Land Ho!, which teases a bit of that lovely Icelandic landscape and the refreshingly genuine and fun bond Eenhoorn and Nelson share throughout the film. The witty work will make its debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival on January 19.
