Pineapple Express duo James Franco and Danny McBride will be working together again. Franco has just joined the cast of Your Highness. It was previously announced that McBride would be starring in the comedic film. David Gordon Green will direct. He also helmed Pineapple Express, so this marks a reunion for the threesome.
The film, co-penned by McBride, will begin shooting in Belfast in mid-July. Franco has an incredibly busy schedule and is turning down coveted roles while he works on his Master's degree at Columbia University, but the actor quickly hopped aboard this pic.
Your Highness revolves around two spoiled, privileged princes and is set in medieval times. An evil wizard puts a spell on their father and kidnaps one of their fiancees, forcing them on a quest to save their family, their loved ones, and their kingdom. Franco is set to play the more noble of the two princes.
Franco is also said to be considering a role in Eat, Pray, Love, a Julia Roberts vehicle. He also reportedly turned down a role in Inception, which will star Leonardo DiCaprio and will be directed by The Dark Knight's Christopher Nolan.
