Jamie Lee Curtis & Cary Elwes Slam Idea of 'Princess Bride' Remake

Rumors are swirling there could be a remake of The Princess Bride, the hit 1987 film from Rob Reiner, and two people connected with the movie aren’t happy!

It all started when Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO Tony Vinciquerra told Variety that a remake could happen. He said, “We have so many people coming to us saying, ‘We want to remake this show or that show. Very famous people whose names I won’t use, but they want to redo ‘The Princess Bride.”

Jamie Lee Curtis, who is married to Christopher Guest who played the role of Count Rugen in the movie, posted on Twitter, “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. ‘Life is pain highness. Anyone who says differently is selling something!’”

Cary Elwes, who played the leading role of Westley in the film, tweeted about the news, “There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one.”
