Your Highness Will, in Fact, Be a Stoner Comedy

Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green showed some footage of his next film, Your Highness, at New York Comic Con yesterday, and audiences confirmed it's a stoner comedy: "It looks to be something like The Princess Bride after a couple of harsh tokes ... about a pair of knights who are far more into recreational drug use than defending the realm," Entertainment Weekly reports. James Franco and Danny McBride star in the film, which Green says was a pet project he didn't think could ever necessarily happen: "On the set of a decidedly more serious movie, All the Real Girls, which he made with McBride in 2003 ... they said that if the two of them ever made it big they would somehow convince a studio to make this movie. Seven years later, voila." Buzz. [PopWatch/EW]
