Franco, McBride, and Green reunite for a medieval fantasy comedy

Posted on 01 April 2009 by ShepRamsey

James Franco and Danny McBride will co-star for their Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green in a new comedy, called Your Highness.

pineapple-express-s04I know what you’re thinking and I thought the same thing. Given the nature of Pineapple, I assumed that Your Highness was some kind of drug reference, but according to Variety, the film is about two princes in a medieval fantasy world who go on a quest to save their families and their entire kingdom.

And it’s a comedy. And it’s directed by David Gordon “Snow Angels” Green. That’s the strangest recipe for a whacky comedy that I have ever heard in my life. But I assume it may just be whacky enough to totally work. Or to be completely abysmal. I guess we’ll see. The flick was written by McBride and Ben Best and production is set to begin on July 20 of this year.

I can’t say I’m not intrigued. Twenty bucks says the whole story will end up being the drug-induced fantasy hallucinations of Franco’s and McBride’s characters.

    I hope there is a lot of unnecessary cursing, and they basically act like they did in Pineapple but there is a 100% believable medieval world swirling around them.
