Beloved 1987 film The Princess Bride is getting a DIY makeover from some of Hollywood’s biggest names. Emotionally, are we ready for this? No… because the original can’t be touched, but will it introduce this fantastic classic to a new generation? Possibly.
It was shot entirely at-home by each cast member using their phones. Beginning Monday, June 29th, Quibi will release chapters of the fan-made movie every day for two weeks.
The star-studded cast includes couples Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner, Common and Tiffany Haddish, Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka and Chris Pine and Annabelle Wallis, as well as Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Garner, Elijah Wood, Jon Hamm, and even more. The actors will trade off roles throughout scenes, each paying homage in their own unique way. In addition, original director Rob Reiner will play The Grandfather and Fred Savage will reprise his role of The Grandson. Quibi donated $1 million in the name of the project to chef José Andrés’ charity World Central Kitchen.
