If you were a fan of last year’s drug induced Pineapple Express your in luck! Co-stars James Franco and Danny McBride are at it again. According to Variety the twosome will re-team for an upcoming project entitled Your Highness. No, its not a sequel to Express, and its not a pun on being intoxicated. Your Highness is actually a period piece about two spoiled medieval princes. The film will also re-team the actors with their Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green.
As I said the film will be a medieval fantasy about two princes who’s father is put under a spell by an evil wizard, while the older brother’s fiance is kidnapped. They must then go on a journey to find their family and save their kingdom. Your Highness will be distributed by Universal Pictures, with a script written by McBride and Ben Best. McBride is also one of the executive producers of the film along with Mark Huffman.
I am really starting to like Danny McBride. I loved him in Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder. He’s a really great comedic talent. Franco on the other hand can seamlessly go from drama to comedy without a twitch. He has some serious versatility on his hands. With the combination of their acting, McBride’s script, and Green’s direction this has all the makings of being truly hilarious.
What do you think about McBride and Franco’s latest project? Do you think it will be as funny as Pineapple Express?
