Fox Searchlight has released the first Downhill trailer for the upcoming American remake of the critically acclaimed Swedish comedy Force Majeure. This version of the story stars Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a married couple whose family ski vacation in the Alps is thrown into disarray when they’re forced to reevaluate their lives and how they feel about each other following a narrow escape from an avalanche.
The American remake is written and directed by Nat Faxon and Jim Rash, who won an Oscar for co-writing The Descendants and made their directorial debut on the 2013 comedy The Way Way Back. They co-wrote Downhill alongside Succession creator/showrunner Jesse Armstrong.

Very interested to see how it turns out. JLD and Ferrell looks like a great duo. It's more dramatic than what they're used to, but they can definitely pull it off.
