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."

So with the Internet now spinning a really tenuous story about Tony Gilroy supposedly eyeing James Franco for the lead role in "The Bourne Legacy," we just want to temper things a moment and point out the one line in the NY Post report that everyone seems to be ignoring: "But a source close to Gilroy said, 'He was just there to see the movie.'"
