On the film front, Green remains attached to a remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, and another stoner comedy, the amazing-sounding Your Highness, with Danny McBride set to play a lazy prince who puffs ganja and fights dragons in an ode to droopy ’80s fantasies like Dragonslayer and Yor. Green will also helm an episode of McBride and Jody Hill’s Eastbound and Down for HBO—which looks to do for booger sugar, ta-tas, jet skis and the South what Billy Mitchell did for arcade games. The man has good taste.
