Funny man Danny McBride talks smart guy screenwriting in YOUR HIGHNESS


“It was really a joke,” says screenwriter Danny McBride of how he and director David Gordon Green came up with the idea for their new movie, Your Highness. McBride co-wrote the script with his writing partner Ben Best. He also stars in the film along side a couple of Oscar-nominated actors like James Franco and Natalie Portman. Not too shabby. So, how does a guy who’s got a reputation as a pot-smoking cut-up manage to write, star and produce a big-budget action adventure like this? The truth is, he’s not that much of a cut-up. He’s actually a really smart guy who will totally nerd out when it comes to screenwriting. Our favorite kind! Script sat down with McBride to have a philosophical conversation on what it takes to write good comedy, fight big studio bosses and stay true to story. The absurd, silly and often raunchy comedian is really a writer at heart.
