Natalie Portman has signed her next release, a multi-million dollar comedy “Your Highness” which will star Danny McBride and James Franco alongside Portman. “Pineapple Express” fame David Gordon Green will be directing the film produced under the banner of Universal pictures with Scott Stuber acting as the producer.
Danny McBride has himself written the script where he will be performing the role of a lazy and arrogant prince who with his brother James Franco needs to complete a task, to save their throne. Natalie plays the role of a warrior princess and love interest of the lazy prince.
Portman is currently shooting for “Hesher” produced by her home production Handsomecharlie Films and co-starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson. But “Hesher” is proposed to be released in 2010 while her next immediate release will be Jim Sheridan-directed “Brothers,” with Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal.
