Your Highness


Director David Gordon Green has come a long way in three years. 2007 marked his last indie drama before turning completely to the dark side with more popular, humorous, and immature fare like Pineapple Express and HBO’s Eastbound & Down. Next year sees his latest feature, Your Highness, and based on the trailer (seen after the jump) it looks like he plans on sitting in this niche for awhile longer.



There wasn’t a whole lot feature film wise this year at New York Comic-Con, but the sheer quality of what was displayed nearly made up for that. Universal and Focus Features dominated the IGN Theater, partially helped by the fact they were the only one of the major studios showcasing their films. But thankfully, they came to impress and every film delivered. The three films that had panels and footage shown were: Joe Wright’s fantastical assassin oriented film Hanna, the much (currently) divisive prequel to The Thing, and of course the David Gordon Green comical pot filled epic Your Highness. Each film couldn’t be more different, but all of them still managed to play greatly, or at least well. The IGN theater wasn’t as chaos fueled as San Diego’s Hall H, so it’s a bit difficult to judge the general consensus, but each piece of footage seemed to receive a genuinely positive response. 



The Hollywood Reporter article announcing the involvement of Jonah Hill in director David Gordon Green’s next comedy, an irreverent look at babysitting called The Sitter, says that the film will harken to 1987’s Adventures in Babysitting, which starred Elisabeth Shue who gets caught up in a whirlwind of trouble after taking a babysitting job on a whim…



Casting announcements shoot across the net almost every day, but not every announcement, rumor, or speculation deserves its own post. Of course we’d be remiss in our duties as the web’s premier source of movie news, reviews, and snark if we didn’t cover them in some fashion… so welcome to the Casting Net!



Zooey Deschanel and Natalie Portman will be coming together for the first time (or third if you count the dream I had last night) in the new film, ‘Your Highness.’



In what seems like a pretty standard story, Natalie Portman has signed on to co-star with Danny McBride and James Franco in the David Gordon Green-directed Your Highness. Notice how awesome I’ve gotten at name-dropping. Notice!
