As I Wish, Let's Not Remake The Princess Bride

Cary Elwes is echoing a largely held belief that remaking great movies badly has the potential to damage the original.

Actor Cary Elwes starred as Westly - so young and handsome in his quest to rescue his true love Buttercup (played by an ethereal young Robin Wright) - and he tweeted, "There's a shortage of ideal movies in this world".

Variety in an article Tuesday about producer Norman Lear, 97, quoted Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra regarding interest in remaking Lear's work. But Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra told our sister site Variety on September 17 that says that "very famous people whose names I won't use" want to remake the beloved love story slash comedy slash adventure. But while many thought the film would remain in its place in history, USA publication Variety published a profile of the original film's producer Norman Lear that has brought the fandom to its knees.

As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales From The Making Of The Princess Bride, offered a behind-the-scenes look at the movie.

"Oh really? Well, I married the six fingered man, obviously why we have stayed together for 35 years and there is only ONE The Princess Bride and it's William Goldman and @robreiner's".

Iranian president's visit to United Nations meeting in NY may be canceled
Iran vehemently denies the claim. "The way I look at it, this is the substitute for a military response, not the prelude to it". Such an outcome would embolden Iran and suggest that behavior that holds the global economy hostage will be met with impunity.

Actress Jamie Lee Curtis, whose husband, Christopher Guest, played the evil Count Rugen, also weighed in.

Lear via his Act III production company was a financier of The Princess Bride directed by Rob Reiner, 72, who he knew from his role as Michael Stivic on All In The Family.

Anyway, let's all listen to the Dread Pirate Roberts himself and let The Princess Bride live, because the idea of a remake?

Others pointed out that Reiner and The Princess Bride book author and screenplay writer William Goldman who died in November at age 87 deserved credit for the movie. It was first reported by Variety that some "very famous people" had been contemplating a remake of the film, although those people were never officially named.

"Who is out here trying to remake the Princess Bride?!". Although I'm not entirely mad about seeing my favourite characters brought back to life, one thing I think we can all agree on is that sometimes, remakes are completely unnecessary.
