Here’s a movie that seems like it’s going to be a really, really peculiar little trip (no pun intended), and now it’s got a brand new cast member.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Justin Theroux has signed on to play an evil wizard villain in Your Highness, a fantasy comedy to be directed by David Gordon Green, whose credits include many depressing indie movies and Pineapple Express.
The movie, written by Danny McBride and Ben Brest, already stars McBride alongside James Franco, Natalie Portman, and Zooey Deschanel.
Between the fantasy elements, the cast, the director, and the pretty obvious underlying joke of the title, I can’t help but wonder if this movie is simply the rambling hallucinations of some rep for Universal who’s lying to everybody.
But, anyway, if it’s real then Justin Theroux is an addition that will certainly get my few bucks to check out this strange little concoction. The man’s worked with Lynch twice. Twice. He’s like the new Kyle MacLachlan. As far as I’m concerned, he’s a STAR!!
