Taking a Hit Off David Gordon Green's Pineapple Express

David Gordon Green, as he probably looked when he was at Richardson High -- high, get it?

Been meaning to post this for a week: Making the Interwebs rounds is an extended, NSWF sneak peek at next year's Pineapple Express, the stoners-on-the-run comedy written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (the Superbad boys) and directed by Richardson High School grad and former local movie theater ticket-taker David Gordon Green. The acclaimed indie filmmaker's 2007 Sundance premiere, Snow Angels, is scheduled to make its limited release next March; Pineapple Express follows in August. And, yeah, the clip's OK -- though I bet it'd be a lot funnier if I had a "cross joint" right about now. Anyone? --Robert Wilonsky
