and something with Russell Brand

Film Universal Pictures have released a snippet of their slate for next year. There's some tremendously exciting future blu-rays in prospect here and something with Russell Brand. And someone's decided to make another one of these:
"Throughout history, tales of chivalry have burnished the legends of brave, handsome knights who rescue fair damsels, slay dragons and conquer evil. But behind many a hero is a good-for-nothing younger brother trying just to stay out of the way of those dragons, evil and trouble in general. Danny McBride and James Franco team up for an epic comedy adventure set in a fantastical world-Your Highness. As two princes on a daring mission to save their land, they must rescue the heir apparent’s fiancĂ©e before their kingdom is destroyed."
Which sounds ... OK ... Then I notice a bit of the casting ...
"... Natalie Portman, Zooey Deschanel ..."
In the same film? This is the manic pixie dream girl equivalent of Michael Mann's Heat. If Kirsten Dunst makes a cameo, a singularity is likely to open up and swallow the world. I can't wait.
