Zooey Deschanel to play James Franco's virginal bride
Coming off one of the biggest hits of her career with "Yes Man" and the buzzworthy "500 Days of Summer" coming out later this month, Zooey Deschanel has landed a plum role in David Gordon Green's new comedy "Your Highness."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Highness" follows a lazy, arrogant prince (Danny McBride) who is forced to complete a quest to save his father's kingdom. His more heroic brother (James Franco) comes along for the adventure. Deschanel will play the virginal bride of Franco's character and Natalie Portman is also on board as a warrior princess who just happens to be McBride's love interest.
"Your Highness" will begin production this month in Northern Ireland.
