Quibi Unveils Ensemble for The Princess Bride Recreation

Rob Reiner’s The Princess Bride is one of the most everlasting romantic adventure comedies that no one wants to see a remake of, but Quibi has found a workaround as they have partnered with Jason Reitman (Ghostbusters: Afterlife) for an ensemble recreation! (Via Entertainment Weekly)

Reitman previously staged live reads of the cult classic at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2011 and Toronto International Film Festival in 2015 and filmed the recreation special in secret in quarantine. The cast list for the special includes Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner (Game of Thrones), Common (The Chi) and Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip), Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother) and David Burtka, Hugh Jackman (Logan), Andy Serkis (War for the Planet of the Apes), Keegan-Michael Key (All the Bright Places), Elijah Wood (Come to Daddy), Beanie Feldstein (Booksmart), Jack Black (Jumanji: The Next Level), Diego Luna (Narcos: Mexico), Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit), Jon Hamm (Tag), Zazie Beetz (Atlanta), Patton Oswalt (The Boys), Josh Gad (Frozen II), Reiner and Fred Savage!

Other cast members are currently being kept under wraps, with the roster all trading off roles across the film’s iconic sequences and Savage reprising his role. It marks the second time in the past few years he’s reprised his role in an homage-fashion after the PG-13 edit of Deadpool 2 entitled Once Upon a Deadpool.

Based on the William Goldman novel of the same name, the 1987 film told the story of a farmhand named Westley, portrayed by Cary Elwes, as he journeys to rescue his true love, Princess Buttercup, played by Robin Wright, and is accompanied by companions befriended along the way, including Spanish fencer Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin), out for revenge for the death of his father. To preserve the novel’s existence, the story is told in the film as a grandfather (Peter Falk) reading it to his sick grandson (Savage).
