And while that reunion might seem like a happenstance of crossed paths, seeing as McBride may be appearing in the film more because he's kind of joined the extended comedy ensemble that continually shows up in Apatow and Ben Stiller films than because he's an old friend of Green's, I'm happy to pass on the news that the two have announced another collaboration, which has nothing to do with Apatow, Stiller, etc. Variety reports that Green will direct McBride in Your Highness, a fantasy comedy scripted by McBride and Ben Best (The Foot-Fist Way) and produced by Scott Stuber (The Break-Up). The actor will receive his first major studio starring role (unless Fox's Beaujolais comes out first) as "an arrogant, lazy prince who must complete a quest to save his father's kingdom." Complete with dragons and wizards, it sounds like it could be something akin to The Princess Bride and Shrek. And while it sounds nothing like George Washington or All the Real Girls, I feel it could still be another brilliant effort from the two North Carolina School of the Arts alumni.
