Although some rumors have been circulating it is now official that Danny McBride and James Franco will be together again with director David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Snow Angels) for the comedy Your Highness. The comedy follows two spoiled and arrogant princes in a medieval fantasy setting. When an evil wizard casts a spell on their father and kidnaps the older prince’s fiance, they’re forced to go on a quest to save their family and the kingdom. It will be scripted by Danny McBride and Ben Best, who played Chuck ‘The Truck’ Wallace in Jody Hill’s hilarious Foot-Fist Way.
This is great news. I LOVED Pineapple Express and this looks just as good. I’m glad Franco will be taking up another comedic role. He was the best part of ‘Express’. I’m also glad David Gordon Green is taking on another higher budget comedy. I wonder if he will return to his indie films anytime soon.
What did you think of Pineapple Express? Looking forward to Your Highness?
