Just a couple of days ago I brought up the upcoming comedy Your Highness, which at the time only starred Danny McBride and James Franco, but now Variety is announcing Natalie Portman has joined the cast. Universal Pictures is distributing the comedy with David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) directing from a script co-written by McBride and Ben Best.
The story centers on an arrogant lazy prince (McBride) who with his brother (Franco) must complete a quest to save the kingdom and his brother’s fiance. Portman will play a warrior princess that the lazy prince falls in love with.
Production begins in July in Ireland, but no release date has been set as of yet.
