Zooey Deschanel has joined the Danny McBride (Tropic Thunder) comedy Your Highness, which tells the story of a lazy prince charged with saving his father's kingdom. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the (500) Days of Summer star will play the bride of the prince's more heroic brother (James Franco).
