David Gordon Green (who once brought us Pineapple Express) has been working on Your Highness, an upcoming fantasy comedy movie. The story revolves around an arrogant, lazy prince and his more heroic brother who must complete a quest in order to save their father's kingdom. The film is starring James Franco, Danny McBride, Zooey Deschanel, Natalie Portman and Justin Theroux.
Here's a first look at the movie Your Highness:
(Click on the picture to enlarge it.)
"Thadeous (Danny McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (James Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he's settled for a life of wizard's weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious' bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off.
Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to trek across the perilous outlands and free the princess. Joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman)-an elusive warrior with a dangerous agenda of her own- the brothers must vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights before they can reach Belladonna. If Thadeous can find his inner hero, he can help his brother prevent the destruction of his land. Stay a slacker, and not only does he die a coward, he gets front row seats to the dawn of an all-new Dark Ages."
Your Highness has been touted as a stoner comedy set in medieval time... I'm a bit afraid that the whole movie will be a huge joke, but I'm willing to give it a chance because Director David Gordon Green managed to gather an impressive cast.
Anyway the movie Your Highness will be released on October 1, 2010.
