Zooey Deschanel Joins Your Highness


The Hollywood Reporter says that (500) Days of Summer star Zooey Deschanel is joining the cast of Your Highness, the Universal comedy that David Gordon Green begins shooting this month in Northern Ireland.

The film, written by Ben Best and Danny McBride, centers on an arrogant, lazy prince (McBride) who must complete a quest to save his father’s kingdom. Joining him on the quest is his more heroic brother (James Franco). Deschanel plays Belladonna, Franco’s virginal bride.

Natalie Portman plays McBride’s love interest, a warrior princess.
