Universal Pictures has set David Gordon Green to direct Your Highness, a comedy that will star Danny McBride.

According to Variety, McBride, who wrote the script with Ben Best, will play an arrogant, lazy prince who must complete a quest to save his father's kingdom.

"This is such an original idea for a comedy that takes place in a kingdom with dragons and wizards, with Danny at the center as the outcast brother who gets an opportunity to prove himself," Stuber said.

Production begins in January.
