These days, to be considered a major player, you gotta have your fingers in a lot of different pies, and television -- especially on premium cable like HBO or AMC -- are providing opportunities for talent to develop a broad array of work. One has to look no further than Mark Wahlberg or Tom Hanks who are heavily involved with the network with a variety of programs. So really, it's no surprise that David Gordon Green and Zach Galifianakis are making bigger strides down those avenues.

Also Talks About His Role In Upcoming Paul Dano Drama 'For Ellen'David Gordon Green tends to have his hands in a number of projects at any given time, but naturally, some stall out, get left behind or put aside. Back in 2008, just as "Pineapple Express" was gearing up to hit theaters and do some boffo box office, Green and Danny McBride pulled out an old script from their drawer, dusted it off, and set it up at Universal. Titled "Mr. Machine," McBride described the project as "our take on those old Amblin films -- it follows around these science fair geeks that construct this robot that gets a life of its own. It's like... I don't know, a 'Short Circuit' zombie movie." Well, it's now a few years later and there has been little word since, so we asked Jon Heder --- who is currently doing press to drum up support for the animated short he's developing via Kickstarter) -- about the status of the picture that is being produced under his Greasy Entertainment shingle.

The next comedy from David Gordon Green, the bonkers-looking fantasy spoof "Your Highness," isn't out until April, but the prolific, chameleonic director has already wrapped his next picture, the Jonah Hill-toplining comedy "The Sitter." Following a college dropout who has to take his three babysitting charges across town to buy drugs for his girlfriend, it's a script we really enjoyed when we read it, and features a very promising cast, including Ari Graynor as the girl, "Where The Wild Things Are" star Max Records as one of the kids, and Sam Rockwell and "Curb Your Enthusiasm"'s J.B. Smoove as Hill's drug dealer nemeses.

David Gordon Green isn't fucking around. A new trailer for his upcoming medieval stoner comedy "Your Highness" has arrived and while it's just as funny (though not as raunchy) as the red-band spot that hit last month, it definitely gives us a look at more of the whizz-bang digital effects that look very good, especially for a not-so-serious quest picture.

David Gordon Green is a machine (best rhyme ever). The director spent the last year putting the finishing touches on his upcoming medieval stoner comedy "Your Highness," acting as a producer on the cult hit comedy show "Eastbound & Down" (sorry, we actually don't understand the appeal here) and this fall, he's been shooting yet another comedy, the very fun sounding "The Sitter."

When Prince Fabious's (James Franco) bride is kidnapped by an evil wizard, he sets out on a quest to rescue her... accompanied by his lazy, useless brother Thadeous. Of course this is all set in medieval times, and Thadeous is played by Danny McBride, whose character has to kick a pot habit along the way. And yes, this is the ridiculous/awesome set-up to David Gordon Green's "Your Highness," which possibly looks like it might be the best time you'll have in theaters in 2011. The film also stars Justin Theroux as the wizard, Zooey Deschanel (who worked with Green on "All the Real Girls," as did McBride; it was his first appearance onscreen) as the damsel in distress and Natalie Portman as a fierce warrior queen.

With John Hillcoat's 'The Promised Land' Back From The Dead, We Look At Other Films Currently In The Studio GravesLast year, pre-production was halted immediately on “The Wettest Country” -- aka John Hillcoat's "The Promised Land" starring Amy Adams, Shia LaBeouf, Ryan Gosling, Paul Dano, possibly Scarlett Johansson, Michael Shannon, etc. -- potentially killing a film we were all very excited to see. But, stunningly, the film has found a new lease on life with the involvement of Tom Hardy (Hillcoat and LaBeouf are the only other principal talent that's back so far), warming our hearts considering since we were ready to cast it onto the pile of would-be movies dead and buried.

Considering we're huge fans of pretty much everyone involved, it's almost surprising that we've been cautious of the upcoming fantasy-comedy "Your Highness." But with David Gordon Green's previous studio comedy, "Pineapple Express," being far from a home-run, and a near-six month release delay, signs were beginning to stack up that the film could be yet another expensive, indulgent misfire from Universal. However, our man on the floor of New York Comic-Con flipped for the footage shown there, calling it "excellent, funny [and] thrilling," and now the rest of us have been able to catch up with what he was talking about, with the first widely available footage from the film making its way on to the internet, in the form of a red-band trailer on IGN.
