After rumors of a potentialremake ofThe Princess Bridebegan circulating online, fans of the original took to Twitter to share their unified opinion on the matter: inconceivable! It seemsVariety, who originally shared the news during theirNorman Learprofile, fell victim to one of the classic blunders: never get involved in a Twitter war withPrincess Bridefans. Especially when a potential remake is on the line.
Though there's no official news that Westley, Buttercup and the rest of the gang will be getting the remake treatment just yet,in Variety's Lear profile, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s chief executive,Tony Vinciquerra, revealed: “Very famous people whose names I won’t use, but they want to redoThe Princess Bride." Varietyused this quote to promote their profile on social and it wasn't long before fans, and even the Dread Pirate Roberts himself, stormed the castle to shut down the idea The Princess Bride should be rebooted.
Cary Elwes, who starred as Westley/Dread Pirate Roberts inThe Princess Brideusedone of his character's most famous quotes to slam the remake rumors. "There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one," he wrote alongside theVarietyarticle.
This can't happen. Just let it lie!!
