Plot Summary: The film follows McBride as a slothful, egotistical prince who, along with his brother (Franco), must embark upon a heroic quest to save the kingdom and rescue his bro’s fiancée. Portman plays a badass warrior princess with whom McBride’s character falls madly in love.
Notes: – Mcbride has been enthusiastic about the production, “There’s castles being built. There’s creatures being made. I’m super excited about this. It’s going to be a crazy, rated-R, ultra violent fantasy movie/comedy. This is inspired by all those early ‘80s sci-fi/fantasy movies like ‘Deathstalker,’ ‘Krull,’ ‘Conan the Barbarian.’ We have everything from stop-motion animation in it to big CG creatures to weird ‘Dark Crystal’-esque puppets.”
