James Franco in Your Highness and Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours

Posted by LiveFor on January 7, 2010

James Franco is a very busy man. Not only is he starring in the US soap General Hospital he has been working away on the medieval comedy, Your Highness, with Danny McBride, Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel. It is directed by David Gordon Green and you can see a photo of them above.

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 fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed.

Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he’s settled for a life of wizard’s weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious’ bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux), the king gives his deadbeat son an ultimatum: Man up and help rescue her or get cut off.

Half-assedly embarking upon his first quest, Thadeous joins Fabious to trek across the perilous outlands and free the princess. Joined by Isabel (Natalie Portman)–an elusive warrior with a dangerous agenda of her own–the brothers must vanquish horrific creatures and traitorous knights before they can reach Belladonna. If Thadeous can find his inner hero, he can help his brother prevent the destruction of his land. Stay a slacker, and not only does he die a coward, he gets front row seats to the dawn of an all-new Dark Age.

Then in March, Franco will begin work on Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours. This is the true story of Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who amputated his own arm to free himself after being trapped by a boulder for nearly five days.

Simon Beaufoy write the script that apparantly has no dialogue for the first hour of the story.

Which one of the two would you rather watch?

Zooey Deschanel as Sid and Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Nancy

Posted by LiveFor on July 8, 2009

Mean Magazine’s Cinemash recreates scenes from various films using some well know actors.

Part one in the series stars with Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt cinemashing the 1986 film Sid and Nancy. The duo also star in 500 Days of Summer and have a scene when they speak about the film.

What did you think of that? I’ll be keeping on eye on Cinemash as they have some good stuff coming up:

JULY 14
Cheech & Chong Cinemash Tron
Writer and Director: Kashy Khaledi

The high-flying comedy duo get into a heated debate about the price of cannabis and decide to “Tron for it,” launching themselves into the virtual world of the science fiction classic.

JULY 21
Stars of Reno 911! and Human Giant Cinemash Point Break
Director: Kashy Khaledi
Writers: Aziz Ansari, Rob Huebel, Thomas Lennon, Ben Garant, Kashy Khaledi

Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant of the notorious fake police squad, Reno 911!, join forces with Aziz Ansari and Rob Huebel of Human Giant, the sketch comedy troupe, to recreate a pivotal scene from the cult favorite action flick.

JULY 28
Channing Tatum and Charlyne Yi Cinemash Dirty Dancing
Directors: Nicholas Jasenovec and Kashy Khaledi
Writers: Charlyne Yi and Nicholas Jasenovec

An appealingly off-beat couple wax romantic and can’t stop moving to the music as they mix intimacy and hilarity in a scene from the megahit movie.

AUGUST 4
Milo Ventimiglia Cinemashes Oldboy
Writer and Director: Kashy Khaledi

One of TV’s true Heroes takes revenge on a group of greedy corporate executives who are strapping on their golden parachutes to escape responsibility for their misdeeds.

AUGUST 11

Writer and Director: Kashy Khaledi

Adult Swim’s animated character Xavier goes to the prom and Arnett, a frequent 30 Rock guest star, is there, too, to reenact the finale from one of the greatest horror movies of all time.

AUGUST 18
Common and Christopher Mintz-Plasse Cinemash Training Day

Gigantic – John Goodman, Zooey Deschanel, Paul Dano in film about beds

Posted by LiveFor on February 12, 2009

Brian Weathersby (PAUL DANO) is a 28 year-old salesman at a high-end Swedish mattress company. The afterthought child to elderly parents (ED ASNER, JANE ALEXANDER), and the youngest son in a trio of successful brothers, a shady oil man (IAN ROBERTS), a surgeon (ROBERT STANTON), Brian is searching for his place in the world. Unfulfilled by his work he spends a good portion of his day pursuing his goal of someday adopting a baby from China. He gets swept up in a romance with the lovely but misguided Harriet

Lolly (ZOOEY DESCHANEL) when she comes in to his store one day and falls asleep on one of the beds. To win her over, he must compete with her bear of a father, Al Lolly, (JOHN GOODMAN) an art-collecting loudmouth with a bad back and deep pockets. GIGANTIC is a funny, surreal love story about the anxiety that comes when two people with crazy families collide unexpectedly and fall for each other.
