David Gordon Green, the director of Pineapple Express, has a new film coming out starring Danny McBride and James Franco, both of whom starred in Green’s Pineapple Express. The film, titled Your Highness will also star Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel. Your Highness tells the story of an arrogant and lazy prince who must complete a quest with his heroic brother in order to save their kingdom. Franco and McBride take on the roles of the two princes and McBride’s character looks a lot like his Kenny Powers character from his show Eastbound and Down, which is a good thing.
We haven’t had much news on the film as of yet but today a new red band trailer was released. The movie looks very funny and with the Pineapple Express team (Franco, McBride and David Gordon Green) behind this, I’m sure it won’t disappoint. Pineapple Express was hilarious and while it’s unfortunate they couldn’t get Seth Rogen to join the crew for Your Highness, I’m sure it will turn out fine. It looks like they’ve found a nice balance between the action and comedy and this movie is now on my radar.
Check out the trailer below.
