Downhill Release Date Revealed for Julia Louis-Dreyfus/Will Ferrell Film

Julia Louis-Dreyfus-Will Ferrell Comedy Downhill Set to Open On Valentine’s Day

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the upcoming Fox Searchlight production Downhill, starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell, has landed a Valentine’s Day 2020 theatrical release date in case anyone is in the mood for a little black comedy to go with their box of chocolates. It will have a lot of competition on February 14 with the simultaneous openings of tentpole movie Sonic the Hedgehog as well as the horror film Fantasy Island, romantic drama The Photograph and the second week of superhero movie Birds of Prey.

The film follows the story of how a narrow avalanche escape during a ski vacation in the Alps throws a seemingly picture-perfect family into disarray as they are forced to reevaluate life, and how they truly feel about each other.

Downhill stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus (Veep), Will Ferrell (Holmes & Watson), Miranda Otto (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Zach Woods (Silicon Valley), Zoë Chao (Strangers), Julian Grey (Godless), Ammon Jacob Ford (9-1-1) and Kristofer Hivju (Game of Thrones).

Behind the camera, Nat Faxon and Jim Rash will be reteaming to direct the American remake. Their directorial debut was the 2013 teen dramedy The Way, Way Back, which earned rave reviews from critics and audiences. The two also scripted the 2011 George Clooney-starring dramedy The Descendants, which earned them an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.

The film was penned by Jesse Armstrong, based on the 2014 Swedish dramedy Force Majeure. Written and directed by Ruben Östlund, the original Force Majeure took home the Jury Prize in Un Certain Regard after its premiere at Cannes, offering a darkly comic psychodrama that focuses on the aftermath of one man’s act of cowardice towards his family after a seemingly disastrous event.

Downhill his produced by Louis-Dreyfus, Likely Story’s Anthony Bregman and Stefanie Azpiazu (Private Life, Enough Said), with Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure) and Erik Hemmendorff (The Square) serving as executive producers.
